Your Perceptions And How They Influence The Way You Feel, Emotionally.

I look up into the cloudy sky and I dub the day to be miserable and dark. As soon as I label the day as miserable, in reference to the weather, feelings associated with this type of weather and with the meaning I have attached to the words used to describe the weather suddenly begin to emerge to the surface.
.
As a result, I begin to feel a sense of misery within myself. But, is it the weather that is causing me this misery, or is it just my perception of the weather and the meaning of the words that I assign to what I see?
.
This is the danger of the labels that we put on certain things in our external environment. When we pass judgement through labels and we attribute meaning and stand for an opinion, we instantly give up our power to remain unscathed by the external world around us.
.
This is a problem because outside forces are always going to be at play and most of the time, they are beyond our control. So, isn’t it important then to maintain a strong willed internal environment of resilience, non-judgement and openness?
.
It is not the weather that is miserable, but it is my perception of the dark, cloudy shades that bring me a sense of misery. Nothing else outside of me is capable of knowing what is miserable and what is not. These are human emotions, concocted by the human perception.
.
Today’s weather can be the most beautiful, depending upon which angle you like to look at it.
