Today I was reminded that you have a choice.
A choice to be in whatever mindset, with whatever attitude you’d like.
Doing whatever you’d like.
A friend told me, “You can either be the thermometer that reads the heat, or a thermostat to cool things off.”
I like that analogy.
It’s so easy to be sucked into negativity and complaining, but what’s the point?
It’s certainly not going to change anything, or move you forward.
I adore life.
All of the people, the places and simple things I’ve experienced.
I am choosing to live each day how I want to, with a choice in making my priorities.
I recently read this blog post, “Date a Girl Who Travels,” by Rosemarie Urquico. I resonate with so many lines, but this one in particular made me stop and think:
“You’ll also recognize a girl who travels by the fact that she’s always amazed at the world around her, no matter if she’s in her hometown or in a place that’s totally new. She sees beauty all around her, not just the ones featured in travel guides or shown in postcards. A girl who travels has developed a deeper appreciation for life. She won’t judge you, or pressure you to do things you don’t want to do. She knows too much about the importance of identity and self-efficacy, and she will appreciate all the more if you won’t pretend to be who you’re not.”
Today is a beautiful day, and tomorrow will be as well.
