I know that I have no right what so ever to complain. When I think back to the winter we experienced in 2011, I should be jumping for joy.
In a way I was jumping for joy then. I had just stopped working. I had stopped having to commute 25 miles in each direction on highways which were constantly under construction, both directions…always, always under construction.
That was the year that Mother Nature decided to grace us with no less than 5 snow storms each of which deposited about 10-12 inches of snow on us. I was fortunate that I didn’t have to drive those long miles through terrible road conditions with usually impaired vision from frosted up windshield wipers. I was safe from any number of possible calamities that might have befallen me on those roads.
These last few weeks have been so much warmer than we could possibly expect for January. In fact it’s colder near our home in New Mexico than it is here in New Jersey.
But it is also so incredibly dreary most days. The dreary is really getting me down. I should be motivated to do a lot of things, but I’m sluggish and unmotivated. I want to sit and read. In my opinion, sitting and reading is a worthwhile endeavor, but I have other things to do as well.
I’m trying to refocus. I’m trying to be productive. Maybe today will be the day.
Isn’t it amazing how weather can have such a positive or negative effect on our day-to-day lives. I have no words of wisdom to impart here. Just musing and trying to get myself out of this funk.
I think I’ll write a list. Things I need to do, then try to follow it. Quite a concept. Actually, I think the better idea is to write down what I do accomplish rather than what I want to do. I think for so many of us, we go through the day accomplishing a great many things for which we don’t give ourselves credit. I shouldn’t be writing a To Do List. I should be writing a What I Did list.
Give myself credit for what I DO accomplish rather than fretting over what I DON’T accomplish. I think I like that idea.
Now let’s see what I can DO!!
Happy Tuesday!! See what you can Do!!
