For starters, I figured I should give a disclaimer for my "challenge" project... I am completely aware of the reality that not every day is going to be perfect! I think I've been in the mindset of summer/vacation mode for the past several months so at this point it is probably easier than usual for me to see everything in a positive way. However, that doesn't change the fact that I want to continue moving forward with this. My goal for the end of the year is to make a lifestyle change - one that alters the way I look at every day when I wake up in the morning. I figure you have a choice, you can look at things with a why-is-this-happening-to-me-attitude, or you can take it as it comes and go with it. And I definitely think the easier route is the 2nd option!
So for today, (which was fabulous by the way), everything seemed pretty awesome. The weather was incredible - and considering that there are like 8 sunny days a year in Cleveland, I feel pretty lucky that today was one of them! I even had the opportunity to eat lunch on the patio of a restaurant downtown. The setting immediately reminded me of cafes in Europe and my heart began to ache for it! I miss it like crazy but I feel so fortunate that I had the experience of living there for those four months, and now I can look forward to days like today that take me down memory lane! So let's see...on my drive home from work I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and let the wind rip through my hair while blasting feel good tunes (oh and sidenote, I do not have a convertible, I was taking advantage of my sunroof) which is always an enjoyable way to spend a summer afternoon.
Aside from an incredibly gorgeous day outside, I had the pleasure of listening to a few of Dr. Wayne Dyer's inpsiring stories on youtube (both of which I highly reccommend if you are looking for a feel good story: "The Story of Shia" and "The Story of Teddy") and I also watched Good Will Hunting which was a pretty good movie AND it inspired me because both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck co-wrote the film and I am currently in the works with one of my good friends on a screenplay...Hmmm...
Well that's all for today, thanks for tuning in and please feel free to share your wonderful Wednesday stories!
