13 Mar Diversity in March
The month of March is certainly a time to focus on diversity. Even the weather is different from day to day. This brings out the best or worst in us and highlights two important lessons we need to consider in our lives and workplaces.
The first is that nothing stays the same and yes even this cold spell we are having here in Winnipeg will pass too. It is possible that we may chose to find something beautiful about the weather if we decide to make that our focus.
Secondly, though something or someone is different, ours may not be a bad experience. There is a lot of good in our changing weather, for one we are never bored of the same old weather all the time, nor are we short of conversation topics around the water cooler or in the hallway to make short conversations and engage our neighbours.
Like the weather, life also brings changes and challenges and it is important for us to reflect on the good times as we face the bad times because there again, life brings us variety and diverse experiences so that we can remain humble and hopefully be more conscious of the good times because we know they may not always last.
What are some of the benefits you are able to find from our ever changing weather or your life situations?
