A snowman is a great thing..as long as they stay cold, right?
They - the snowman - can't do anything about it and they have no control over it. They are prisoners of the weather and the temperature. And, on top of that, there has to be specific weather conditions before a snowman can even exist.
What about you? I'm talking about the "real" you. The "you" that is able to be a positive influence for yourself and those around you. The "you" that has a "don't quit" attitude and that refuses to give up or give in. Get the picture? Yeah, THAT "you".
Does that "you" only "come out" when all the conditions are just right? Does that "you" only stay strong and act as a person of positive influence only as long as things go your way?
Another way to approach this is to ask the question in a way that you have likely heard before: "Are you a thermostat or a thermometer?" Are you like a thermostat in that YOU set the temperature/environment settings or are you more like a thermometer and simply reflect and react to the temperature/environment?
So, hey, DON'T BE A SNOWMAN! Sure, they're fun but they aren't around for long. And, have you also noticed that, after a while, they actually begin to start looking dirty and ugly?
Be the thermostat and stay strong, my friend. and, until next time...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
