The past week has flown by in a flurry of travel articles, holiday dinners and failed climbing expeditions. The update flow has slowed to a meek trickle, but that will all be history once 2011 comes. I hereby declare an oath of daily updates, no exceptions. Will I keep true to this promise? Only the new year can tell. Here’s your weekly dose of Monday Motivation, be positive!
“There is nothing in this world that a positive attitude cannot make a whole lot better. It’s contagious, so just start…the rest will take care of itself.” – Marianne Curtis
I really connected with today’s quote by the lovely Marianne Curtis. It reminds us that any situation can be taken in either a positive or negative light; your perception is entirely up to you. Yes, my highly anticipated climbing trip to Tennessee did get snowed out, and yes, I could be very bitter about it while flipping through photos taken by friends who did get to go climbing. Instead, however, I’m relishing in the fact that I didn’t have to camp outside in below freezing temperatures, and now have a few extra hundred dollars to drop on a new camera. Look on the bright side, folks!
Happy Monday, everyone!
