Lately mine has been piss poor. I feel like I’m under a lot of stress, but don’t know where exactly it’s coming from.

It’s my attitude. I wake up expecting a bad day and you know what? I get it. It’s the only thing that’s guaranteed in life. If you think your day is going to suck, it is.

So today was starting off like the rest of the week. Bad. I decided the only way to fix it is to change my bad attitude.

I packed my girls up, intent to get all of us out for some fun. We headed to McDonalds for a treat, where I paid for the person behind me. I needed that pick me up! We then trooped over to the park, where we ate our treat on a blanket in the shade. It’s wicked hot here, but we had a nice breeze today. After lunch, we played in the playground for a bit. Then decided to take a walk on the nature trails attached to the park. We picked up litter, and I got to take some pictures. There are some beautiful flowers on the trail.

Now we’re home and both girls are down. I’m going to take some time for myself! No house cleaning!!!

So even though it started out shitty, it can only get better, right?

    Good for you! Sometimes it really helps me to get out of a funk if I change my surroundings. I bet your girls really had a nice time.

    Oops…meant to say that I really enjoyed your story about attitude. Believe me, I understand. You choice of how to spend the day is amazing. To muster up the motivation, then to pay-it-forward, and take a beautifilled walk in the park while picking up trash! Your children are being taught well, and there is nothing like doing for someone else to lift the spirits! One of my favorite activities.

    The fresh air, treating you and your children to such a creative and sharing day, as well as being out in nature can definately refill your spirit.

    A hug,

    You’re so right. Sometimes I wake up mad at the world. But then I write a blog about it, and before I know it, I’m laughing at myself. Good for you for changing your week.

    Good for you Jen – I find getting out of the house does wonders for me…I can only stare at the mountain of chores for so long before I go mental 🙂
