This is as difficult as Wisconsin weather gets…11 below without the wind. It’s so cold that after swimming at the Y this morning, my friend’s wet hair turned to ice as we walked a block to the car. It’s impressively cold but fortunately it won’t last long. Soon it will be 20 degrees and everyone will be outside embracing the warmth. I think Mother Nature hits us with unbearable weather to give us perspective. It works.
Life offers the same lessons. Sometimes our struggles overwhelm us, but eventually things improve and we’re so grateful that we’re filled with passion, drive, and focus for the opportunities ahead. Don’t wait for adversity to give you perspective. Chase your dreams today.
