I got to go for a 3 hour hike, in the snow earlier this week. It was a peaceful, below freezing, powdery, desolate, wonderland and I had it all to myself. The plus was that I walked out my front door to get there.
On the hike, I was thinking through my life and my situation. I was getting more and more bummed about things when suddenly I had a realization: I spend a lot of my time and energy, focusing on the negative relationships in my life.
Wow, the light bulb came on, and I realized just how much time I waste in doing that. But now, what to do? Like all other bad habits, I will need to replace it with a good habit. When I catch myself thinking negative thoughts, I will replace the thought with something positive....something as little and unassuming as bird tracks in the snow.!!
Its going to be a great day, enjoy it!
