Do you find it interesting how quickly we human doings adjust to change? For the past few days the weather around here has been frigid, although a couple of interesting adverbs are usually placed in front of the adjective, frigid. This morning when I went out to start the car (parked in the driveway, not the garage, a story for another day!)it felt much warmer, or at least, not nearly as cold -27C!!
I also find it fascinating how quickly our bodies adjust to increased activity and resistance - sometimes known as exercise. It's always interesting how much quicker they adjust to a decrease in the same thing. We adjust very easily to increased income, larger houses, new technology, most odours (with the exception of baby poop), sleep duration, heated car seats, Kona coffee, wet socks and questionable humour.
Perhaps the only thing we don't adjust to as quickly, is a change of mind. No preaching today but the difference between a good day and a bad day, happiness and despair, success and failure, acceptance and rejection, hot and cold is a change of mind.
