What’s up with Mother Nature?

Oh Mother Nature, you’re always up to something, aren’t you? You didn’t stopped after you gave us a terrible winter — did I mention before my vacation, I slipped and hit my back and head? I was okay, though — you had to delay Spring and kept giving us snow while my friends enjoyed the beach and sunshine. Just when I thought things were going to get better, they actually did! The forecast for today was 15 C and it really was. I could not believe my eyes, I thought I was looking at the weather in Vancouver, or my ipod was broken. I put on a hoodie and went to the bank…BIG MISTAKE.

I felt a bit of wind when I left my place, but I did not think too much about it. I was overwhelmed by the warmth I felt. I really thought I was dreaming or that I was suddenly transported to Florida —okay, I know it wasn’t that hot, but it felt that way compared to the awful winter we had— I felt happy, I felt like all the troubles in life left me. I was singing tunes and skipping by the front yard (okay, not really).

And then Mother Nature decided to crush my spirits by sending a hurricane-like wind all over the city. It’s like Mother Nature here in Ontario is on eternal PMS.

But, I didn’t let that get me down. I told myself I was going to enjoy this walk even if I were to be swept by the wind. I pretty much did. The ENTIRE walk to the bank and to the market,  my hair was tangling, my hoodie almost flew away, and my glasses (yes, I wear glasses) did not protect me against the dirty dust. It is my day off today and I just wanted to go for a walk and relax, but nope, that wasn’t going to happen. I have to admit it was hilarious trying to escape the gusting winds, but Ontarian Mother Nature just loves to poke fun at me, and sometimes I just want to be left alone. Poor Sun, it comes out and shines down on us, and we can’t even enjoy its company. Seriously, what the heck Mother Nature? I’m about to lose it.

Do we run into the same strangers again?

I finally was able to walk to the grocery store today. The sidewalks aren’t icy! I guess Mother Nature is not on PMS anymore. In the middle of my walk, a thought came into my mind. The strangers we walk by or see on a daily basis, do we get to see them again? To be honest, I don’t really notice a lot of people I pass by on a daily basis, so I do wonder if I’ve been passing by them for a long time, or maybe for the first time.

I tend to see a lot of seniors (as in the elderly) if I go to the mall early in the mornings. You see them in groups, in pairs, alone.  How many times have I run into the same seniors? Will I live to be one and look as happy with their friends as they do? I know everyone has a different life, and we all have struggles, but I have yet to see an angry senior while s/he eats breakfast with her/his friends. It’s probably just where I live, or my mind just loves to play tricks. Oh well…

I like to think we will all stop running into unpleasant people, but that will never change. For every person that makes a positive change, there is a person that makes a negative one. Eventually, I do hope one day we can all live in peace. 

Not everyone you come across with is meant to stay in your life. You never know who are you going to meet, and how they’re going to shift your life (whether in a positive or negative direction). Sometimes when you meet someone new, and they tell you they used to take steps where you have already stepped on, you say, “We’ve probably run into each other at some point”. What are the odds you have?

Who knows, maybe the next person you bump into will change your life.

To be honest, I don’t know why such a thought would elaborate in my mind. And to be brutally honest here, I don’t think I’m making a lot of sense. 

 

Of course! The world sort of rules me today!
