Feeling Cold

Minnesota is an interesting place to live. I think it takes a certain kind of somebody to live here. I am certainly not that kind of somebody 75% of the time. I cannot stand the cold that is Minnesota winters. I love to talk about how I can’t wait to leave this frozen tundra.

All that being said…

An interesting thing occurred this morning as I was filling the water trough and putting out hay for the horses. I began to sweat. I was sweating quite a lot for me…in January. The interesting part is that I wasn’t wearing 500 layers. I was wearing jeans, a long sleeve shirt and a coat. I had just gotten out of the shower and had my wet hair twisted up in a towel. I wore gloves so I wouldn’t get my hands wet.

Then I began to think…

Maybe it’s warmer out than I thought it was supposed to be.

Upon returning to the house to dry my hair while the tank filled, I checked the weather app. 9⁰ out. That’s right, folks, NINE DEGREES!

Why the heck am I sweating in 9⁰ when just last week I was wearing full snow gear in 20⁰ weather?

Bodies can be strange.

At the start of fall, 40⁰ feels frigid. But by spring, that same temperature means I no longer wear a coat outside.

Today, in 9° weather, I didn’t feel cold. How awesome is that?

What if feeling is all relative? What if feeling changes with each passing day?

Oh, wait! It does.

Feelings aren’t permanent.

So, if you feel like crap today….

What else is possible that I never even imagined?
How can the day show up better than I ever thought?
How does it get better than this?

And if today, you feel fabulous…

What else is possible that I never even imagined?
How can the day show up better than I ever thought?
How does it get better than this?

Because it can always get better than we think it can!!

Much Graitude,
