Snow, Snowballs and Life

Colorado was hit with an October snowstorm and we've been snowed in for essentially two days. In only two days I managed to fall into "lazy mode" where nothing looked interesting to me besides food and whatever might appear visually appealing on a TV screen. Last night as I was getting ready for bed I realized that I'd have to get up early to go to work and that started to bum me out. I haven't worked for three days (a beautiful unexpected vacation from above) and I'm bummed about returning to work? What the heck?

So I woke up this morning at 6:30, bright and early. I normally hit the snooze about three times until it's actually 7am, but today I didn't. I awoke feeling happy and inspired and ready to take on the world. This feeling made me feel empowered and I began to think that I could and should have this attitude everyday.

Yes, I realize that stuff happens that I can't control, but the one thing that I can control is my attitude and my response. I couldn't control the snow, but I can control how I'm going to react to it all. SO this morning, while the roads are a bummer because they are icy and it's freakin cold out, I've chosen to enjoy life and this very moment that I am in - and I've decided to make today a beautiful day for myself regardless of whatever might get thrown my way. AND let's just say that a big snowball gets thrown at me, I will get back up, shake it off and move along... with a smile.

Attack the day. Attack today. You deserve it - you are beautiful. You are amazing!
