losing the ‘tude

One might say that I carry around a bit of an attitude from time to time.  Well these sporadic moments seem to be reoccurring with a bit more frequency.  While the hubs and I were out for a run last week we started discussing our current life situation.  And although things may not be our ideal right now, things really aren’t that bad.  In fact, things are pretty good — it just depends on our perspective.  So we’ve decided to start holding one another accountable and keeping our ‘tudes in check.  Two months ago we started this trend by each writing in a journal five things we are grateful for before we hit the sack.  This practice has helped us be more mindful throughout the day of the little things that make our life better.  It also helps get to me a good place before I fall asleep rather than reeling about the day or personal problems that no doubt are going to prompt the end of the world.

I’ve seen a video going around the internet that I think perfectly captures my new efforts and ideal attitude.  If I could get to where this girl is, then things would definitely be o.k.


  1. That girl is something! And yeah, perspective… well it comes and goes. That is neat you were able to convince your husband to also journal write (even 5 words), that would be something worth celebrating to me. 🙂

  2. Thank you! I think we could all use a little dose of that reassurance. LOVE the video. Thanks, too, for your little “blips” of blog entries. Great to read a paragraph or two and go on with my day. Very cute and creative. Keep ’em comin’ girl! :o)
