Red sky at night, sailors delight!

If you have been around sailors or boaters or fishing fanatics you have most likely heard them say "Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sun at morn, sailor take warn".

I say it a lot and most of the time it actually works out. Red sky at night usually means there is a high pressure building in and the weather will be fair the next day. Some days, of course, the red sky is brilliant red if their is a forest fire someplace west of here.

The red sky at morn is meaning a low pressure is coming in from the east and thus means storms are on their way...again given that they is no major pollution issue east of here.

Tonight there was a brilliant red sky as the sun was setting and yes there is a high pressure coming over us and tomorrow's forecast is for cold and sun. In the summer it usually means hot and dry. Red in the morn is muggy and hot in the summer (storm weather) and in the winter a red morn means you can expect some possible snow coming your way.

What does this have to do with positive and purposeful living? Well let me tell you! Side note: I giggle every time I write 'well let me tell you' as I seem to try to connect things a lot!

Okay so here you go. What if you could look out your personal life's window every night at sunset and know if you were going to have a brilliant sun and blue sky day coming your way? What would you do if every morning you woke up and if you saw a red morn you could prepare yourself for a not so great personal day? What if your life was related to the weather?

Now, I know most of you have lived through this past winters ups and down and looking at the weather forecast for this week it could great crazy out there this week. But what if? What if we could see ahead?

Well in short we can and we don't need the sunrise or set to see ahead. What we need is to pay attention to our attitude! How many times do you go to bed thinking positive and purposeful thoughts? How many times do you wake up in the morning and feel anger and frustration just by getting up?

Our personal sky is all about attitude! Yes, it is! Attitude leads us to either the red sky at night, let's all take delight or red sky at morn, others around us be warned!

The challenge is to have more red sky at night events. That is where your positive and purposeful living comes from! That is where you feel alive! That is the high pressure feeling like you can conquer your world!

Ah yes, red sky at night....make that YOUR delight!
