It's early this Wednesday, but you and I are already writing our story line for the day. Your story line is that narrative that you and I bring to every day we live.
I was tempted to complain about the snow today.
In my view, it's about three weeks too early. It snowed a bunch last night, just like the night before. I had to fire up my snowblower. The snow from yesterday was still inside the chute and intake system (what's that thing that scoops up the snow called?) and it froze up, so I had to hand dig all that frozen icy snow out of my snowblower. Then after five minutes of snowblowing the snowblower ran out of gas. The cars were frozen over too, so I had to chisel them out….
My guess is that reading the paragraph above didn't energize you, it drained you. That's the point.
Complaining belongs in the circular file – cross shredded and even burned.
Complaining is something I want to banish from my personality. So I'm writing this post to remind myself that it's just not helpful in any way. It's not. Stop. Cease. Desist.
The trees were gorgeous this morning, did you see that? Ice and snow. Kind of looks like Christmas. I love that. Bet I could get the car cleared off for Toni if I went out there now….
Much better story line. Besides, the people who see the opportunity and the possibility often are the ones who seize the opportunity and the possiblity.
What's your story line today?
