Don’t Be an Old Fuddy-Duddy

 

Children most usually enjoy the weather no matter what it is. If it’s snowing, they go play in the snow. If it’s hot, they go to the pool or play in the sprinklers. If it’s turned cool from the summer, they run in the falling leaves. If it’s spring, they lie in the grass and look at the clouds or the stars.

What do people do when they get older? They complain about the weather. I heard someone say one time that they have about a 5 degree window of what they feel is comfortable for the outside temperature. Of course, it was an exaggeration (it was probably more like a 15 degree difference).

Think about your own attitude about weather. After all, you can’t escape the weather, even ideal places have bad days. Plus, what many people call ideal weather, someone else is going to hate—too sunny, too rainy, too foggy, too dry.

If you are one of those weather haters, think about it. Doesn’t this also affect your mood for other areas in your life? How can you have all the fun in marriage you’d really like to have if your view of what makes ideal weather is so narrow? I doubt you can honestly keep your feelings to yourself about it. Your spouse (and friends) probably get tired of you being so unadaptable.

Look to see what the children in the neighborhood are doing outside, then muster up a little playful attitude of your own.

What do you think? Are you one of the weather haters—always too hot, too cold, too windy, or too stuffy? If you aren’t one of these, how do you adapt to the weather so easily?
