As today is my birthday, it seems as good a day as any for an attitude overhaul.
Instead of "rats, I really need to get back to running to get my fat butt in shape..."
..."I get to run myself breathless on a beautiful day with my dog and husband!"
Instead of "do those sheep need to be fed again?..."
... "I get to go out to the barn and see those little babies! And feed the sheep!"
Instead of "I really have to get working on my April sweater which requires ripping out the front of a sweater I started last year, for the third time..."
... "I get to rip out the front of my sweater for the third time!"
Instead of "I have to go to the vet's and get dewormer for my darn dogs who can't resist the taste of poop, and make special meals for them to mask the taste of the powder..."
... "I get to make special meals for my discerning dogs!"Hmm, this is going to take some getting used to, I can see.
