What a Difference a Day Can Make

Monday, February 02, 2009

On Sat I was irritable and combative.
My dog was refusing to eat and shaking and lethargic (after her miracle recovery)
I was lamenting the fact that the weather conditions did not really allow me to ride my horse comfortably or safely.
The roads were such that on the local road to the barn we were pulling over at a sharp narrow turn and passing single file due to deep snow and whiteouts.
I felt overwhelmed with chores and to-dos.

On Sun I was relaxed and openminded.
My dog started eating and went to the barn and ran in the snow and played with her bone.
Sunny & mild so I I threw the tack on my horse, waded throw the thigh deep snow and had a ride, bouncy and brisk, but still a ride! Joy!
I could see the black surface of the road and they were ploughed to full width.
I gave myself permission to leave some chores undone, and I baked cookies for my son and finished my book.

What a difference 24 hours and a new day makes! Worth keeping in mind sometimes.

    Alright, I think it all has to do with what brain synapse happens to be firing when we first open our eyes in the morning. If we could only figure out the faulty ones and disconnect them, we'd be golden.
I'm glad things turned around for you. It really is all a matter of attitude. Now if only we could keep the attitudes we like and discard all the rest.
