I was about to whine and cry because I spent another five hours in the cold and very wet conditions again this morning clearing snow and ice. But, as I worked through those hours I thought it over. It occurred to me how lucky I am. Yes, the conditions were miserable and this winter has been worse than most. Oh, boo hoo! 😭 I have a job. I have a roof over my head. I have warm clothes. I have my family. And, I have my health!
There are many events in my life I have no control over; like the snow😉 I do, however, have control over how I react to those events and whether or not I allow them to control me. I CHOOSE to not let something I cannot control get in the way of my ability to have a good day. I'm not saying I don't have a breaking point but I'll do my best to go out kicking and screaming with a smile on my face!
Take my health for example. I fought hard to lose weight only to then find out I was in need of a pacemaker. Happily, that surgery was successful. But now, following recovery and gaining back a few pounds, I'm struggling to keep the weight off. I could easily just give up, sit back, and put all my weight back on OR, I can show up every day, eat healthy, take care of myself, and work the programs I have already proven work so well👍 I choose the healthy option! What about you? Which option do you choose?
