“So how’s the weather?”
“Pretty hot these days right?”
“Woah, it’s freezing, can’t wait for the summer.”
People love to talk about the weather. It’s a nice, simple, go-to conversation-opener, a certain ice-breaker that all people have in common.
I also believe that the way people talk about and handle the weather is a great way of finding out about their personalities.
People constantly complaining about the weather, people who when it’s hot ask for cold, and when it’s cold ask for hot, are people who easily find obstacles in life. They are people who quit easily, with the slightest mishap.
On the other hand, people who embrace the weather are people who truely embrace life and live it to the fullest.
A person who always comes to mind that is a great example of the latter is a great inspiration of mine, Casey Neistat. Now Casey Neistat is a fanatic runner who enjoys running about 10 miles a day.
Most people enjoy running when the weather is ideal, for them Spring and Fall are the best months for running. But Casey? No. Casey enjoys running most in the hot months of summer. For him, August’s heat isn’t a tormenting time he waits patiently to go by. For him, these are the moments he waits for all year, and when they come, he takes advantage of them best.
So, please, let’s stop nagging about the weather and start seeing what we can do to take advantage of it best.
