How Hot Is It
"When the water starts boiling it is foolish to turn off the heat." ~Nelson Mandela
I live in the Atlanta, Georgia area and we have entered into a very warm period. Some would say hot and others would ask, "how hot is it?" My friend and talk show host Rick Probst of Faith Talk Live would reply "It's so hot out I just saw a roasted turkey fly by our studio window."
Having this kind of heat is something we should expect when living in the south. But when the heat comes, it is always an adjustment one has to make. And with these high daily temperatures permeating everything, the asphalt parking lot turns into a goo-like substance. Shoe prints will sink and leave impressions in the asphalt in a weird cartoon-like fashion.
Some say the heat is a sultry hot, but for me "hot is hot."
When the heat gets turned up, you can either fold into the asphalt goo or forge on to a cooler place. The choice is rather simple.
The hard part is executing the choice.
As you progress through your daily life, there will be a limited amount of perfect days. There will be cold days and there will be hot days. A wide variety is the spice of life they say and such will be yours to embrace.
You get to choose how you approach these types of days. You get to keep the water boiling or not.
Just keep moving forward despite the circumstance.
Is it hot outside? Sure, but eventually that too will pass. Soon you will have the cold to contend with. Either way, keep moving towards your dreams and your best life.
And stay inspired my friends!
