I’ve been awake since before five.
I can’t explain why my two year old feels the need on occasion to wake up and discuss the alphabet and the many benefits of eating grapes before the sunrise.
So, here I sit, contemplating the effort it would take to make some coffee and toast.
At which point I remember I am out of bread.
While these are the sort of things that contribute to a bad start to the day, I’m determined to look at it as an opportunity to get things done. In other words, instead of spending the day cranky, I’m making the choice to be happy.
There are some horrible things in life that are worth being upset over. Things that truly are fully consuming and require a lot of effort and support to recover from. A good percentage of the time, most of us aren’t dealing with the truly horrible. We might feel like we are, but in reality, it can come down to our attitude towards what we are dealing with.
So, make the choice to be happy. If things aren’t going your way, find the positive. Sometimes it is as simple as the choice to smile rather than scowl. Be the bird.
Yesterday, I was given a blog award by two different bloggers, Girl Parker and Jennifer of Hunting Sea Glass With Wolves. Rather than rattle off ten more things about me, I thought I would share some things that made me smile this morning, in an effort to get everyone’s weekend off to a happy start.
Thanks for the awards ladies!
