I’ve been complaining all summer about our lack of summer weather here in the Puget Sound. I’m a native of the Northwest and I’m used to the gray days and drizzle…in winter and spring. Normally, the summer and fall are brilliant. Just recently, the local ABC affiliate said that the Puget Sound has had 78 minutes of 80+ degree weather all year. 78 minutes! I can’t even get 9 holes in in 78 minutes!
Tomorrow I head to Dallas/Fort Worth for a 3-day professional seminar. It will be 106 degrees all week, and its been above 100 degrees for about 3 weeks there. I can’t imagine being anywhere that air conditioning isn’t on full blast. The grass is not always greener…
I think we get to that point in both our business and personal lives as well. When things are tough and we are challenged, it’s easy to look at the “other side of the fence” and wish you were there. The truth is that if you’re reading this then you are better off than the vast majority of this planet. Starvation, disease, lack of clean water, human trafficking, and terrorism are the way of life of most of our race. Many of our countrymen are being shot at in foxholes and in the air protecting our freedom. We’re pretty fortunate. If we take the time to gain some perspective, it makes our challenges less daunting and should give us the courage to look at our side of the fence and be happy with our grass.
