It is hard enough for me to stay in the moment, to be present in the present. Now I notice that the weather reports on radio and TV are making it harder to stay in the moment. They seem to hurry past today's weather and tell us about what to expect tomorrow and next week.
It may be perfectly comfortable today, but when the emphasis is on how cold it will be tomorrow, I start to feel cold already. We hear so much about impending storms or hot spells or cold spells, many of which never happen, that we "experience" them because of all the hype.
If I could just accept and experience the sunshine today, I would not be as bothered about the clouds that (may) come tomorrow.
I could also stop listening to weather forecasts. But I can't seem to break the habit. It is kind of exciting to know that a storm is brewing...Take precautions...load up on staples. There is probably a place for that, but I could do well to strive to stay in the moment, to be present in the present, to be ... here... now. (By the way, it's sunny outside, and cold).
