⛈My Favorite Weather⛈

Hi, friends! It’s the end of May, the clouds are out, and it’s a chilly 75 degrees…IN ARIZONA! What?! If you’ve been following along for a while, you know that cold, gloomy weather is my favorite. The more gloomy it is, the happier I am.

My mom and I were talking about this recently. We were actually out shopping and she could see the change in my mood as the dark clouds started to roll in. She and I have a couple theories about why this is.

Here is my mom’s theory, which makes a lot of sense to me. They talk about balance. Maybe because on the inside, I feel dark and gloomy, when the environment (the weather) matches, I feel and am more balanced.

Here is my theory. When the weather is cold and gloomy, I am able to bundle up in my pants and warm sweater, where I feel comforted and protected (think about how a weighted blanket makes you feel when you’re anxious). When the sun is shining and it’s hot (remember, AZ gets in the 100 degree temps), it requires wearing lighter, more breathable clothing, leaving me feeling exposed and vulnerable.

What do you all think; are we on to something?

Happy Wednesday, everyone. May the weather bring what makes you feel happy.☺

With love,

  1. Lucky you, we got high 90s in Tampa Florida and it’s suppose to be maybe 100s on memorial day. Ugh, stuck inside with cabin fever.

    As for your mood re: weather. I think it’s because the Sun causes a lot of energy thus can make my anxiety worse, sometimes the back pain is worse.

    Gloomy works to a certain degree for me but too much gloomy can depress my mood if I’m not busy. Remember, I’m freelance as coach so i’m basically unemployed and working with chronic back pain would not be consistent. Nope, no disability. Government is screwed up.

    Enjoy dear. 😁🙏

    1. We are super lucky this year! Normally, we’re sweatin’ our butts off in over 100 degrees. Soaking this up while I can. I get how not staying busy when it’s gloomy could get to be a bit much. Sorry no disability…it’s ridiculous.
      Take care! 💜💜💜

  2. Looking at it from that standpoint, I am the opposite. I don’t like the cold because it affects my headaches and I have to stay inside. The heat gives me energy and makes me feel healthier.

    1. I can definitely understand that. The heat tends to make fibro fatigue worse for me. The cold makes everything hurt, but I like it better anyway. Hope you’re doing okay.
