The weather

Often, especially here in the UK, we are constantly looking at the weather forecast and react either positively or negatively depending on what’s forecast. Usually here in the UK, negatively no matter what is predicted…too hot, too cold and so on.

The reality compared to the forecast is often completely different, in some cases bearing no resemblance at all to what was forecasted only the evening before. That’s not strange really as the weather is not predictable despite what the forecasters would have you believe.

This is like life, the forecast in our head and reality are nearly always completely different, yet we spend most of our waking hours projecting forward into the future and suffering internally from our projections, only for it to be not what we expected. All that wasted energy on trying to predict the unpredictable.

Like the weather, life is best when we just wait for what unfolds with each moment. Predict the unpredictable, and suffer less.
