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. :)
