As I was driving to work this morning I couldn't help but think about how wonderful 20 degree temps feel! We had record breaking temps in Ohio during the month of February with multiple snow/cold days and few days above the 0 degree mark. I am wearing less layers the last couple days and I realized how good it feels not to be so bogged down!

Lately I've spent a lot of time thinking about being happier, more optimistic.  Getting back to the old me.  As I was thinking about my thinning layers literally this morning, I realized also that I went home yesterday in a better mood and I believe it was because I chose a better attitude.  This morning I got some news from my mom that could have brought me down.  It wasn't life threatening news, just silly dysfunctional family news.  I was initially mad... but then I thought about how good it felt to wear less layers.  And I am choosing to not let this news get the best of me.  It will not bring down my day or my attitude.  If I can't control it, I won't let it control me.

I am an inherently optimistic person so I don't know what's gotten into me lately.  But I do know, that I like the way I feel with less layers on.  So I'm going to wear my negative attitude like I wear my clothing: thinned.  :)


  1. I like your thoughts about attitudes and layers. I've been thinking about attitude as a paintbrush that colors everything.

  2. I can't wait for this-coming week since it's supposed to be in the 40's. I couldn't get the chill out of my body yesterday and slept in my woolies. (You've gotta do what you've gotta do.)
