Yesterday, Kara mentioned how she tries to enjoy the scenery during life and not get lost in "the race." That is great and all, but sometimes when you are living in a construction zone it takes effort to find the beauty in the "scenery." I have been working on keeping my PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) by looking on the bright side of things.
I focus the new logo I put on the front door last night!
I block out the fact that right next to it is the window painting gone wrong that needs to be scrapped off and redone and until that happens I have to keep hanging the blue sheet with the spring clamp for privacy.
I focus on how great our lathe accent wall is looking!
I ignore the fact that we are decorating walls before I have finished framing walls for the bathroom and that we are still utilizing these lovely cardboard curtains. (At least we are consistent with our hanging hardware).
I focus on how much cooler the shop is since I added reflective insulation to the skylights. (and that I have almost perfected my karaoke performance of usher's new song, because I have heard it so many times while working)
I don't think about the other two blazing hot skylights I still have left to cover.
Probably the best example of my positive outlook is that instead of dwelling on the fact that the high school senior that I fell in love with is growing old and going to her 10 year high school reunion.
I am celebrating the fact that we met each other at such an early age and have gotten to spend so much of our still young lives together. (I was just joking about her growing old, she hates when I talk about her being older than me)
Stay positive, have a great weekend, and get some things done! (that last one is just a little self talk).
