inspire me on hump day: when life hands you lemons...


...and lemon bars are pretty dang really is all in your perspective...your attitude...

...whatever your situation finds you this hump day...just keep in mind how much perspective can rock your day...i know when i'm pissy, the last thing i want is someone telling me to have a better attitude...however...

“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me."  Charles Swindoll

so no matter what you week is throwing at you...just remember this morning how flippin' awesome you can make it!

just do it.  seriously.  choose to be happy today.  choose to say something beautiful to someone who's been annoying you.  choose to be the change you are wishing you'd see.  choose to have an adventure and change a boring day up.  choose to do whatever you need to enjoy this hump day more - get a coffee and bring someone else a coffee.  call whoever you've been waiting to.  and forget about all the things that haven't been done yet and tell your husband he's the bomb (because, really, it's never that big of a deal to have forgotten to take the trash out).  do a little dance in the elevator to get your groove on and snicker a little to yourself at how awesome you are. 

you can do SO MUCH with such a little change in your attitude.

"We got to make this land a better land
than the world in which we live.
And we got to help each man be a better man
with the kindness that we give.
I know we can make it.
I know darn well we can work it out.
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
yes we can can, why can't we?
If we wanna, yes we can can."

I drank a glass of lemon juice yesterday. I think the phrase has never had the same impact for me because I love lemons so much! It would be a bit more accurate to say: When life hands you burnt lentil soup that you left on high in the slow cooker over night and it bubbled over onto the counter and is now a crusty mess...
