Winter surely has hit Ithaca this morning. It’s in the teens, snowing and my nose is bloody. I forget that this time of year I really benefit with the use of a dehumidifier. My room gets so dry especially when I have my space heater on. I just might seek one out today. The weather looks chilly for the next couple of days while getting into the 20s on the weekend. I hope is sunny on Saturday because there is a potential race I want to get into. We’ll have to see. I might just save the money and do a long run instead.
I follow a few random people on Twitter and one of these is @commonwhitegirl
Most days she posts funny little gifs that give me a chuckle but also remind me what first world problems I have. It helps me keep things in perspective and also makes me happier. Rather than groan and agree with the things they tweet, I thank God for the blessings I have and appreciate that relatively speaking, my life is pretty great.
Every once in a while, Common White Girl (I have no idea who they are) posts something I really like or that really resonates with me at the moment. The following list really hit home. I had just found a couple zits, was lambasting myself for drinking coffee when I could have had water and scolding myself for buying an expensive camera. I then read this list and gave myself a break. The other two points about relationships is something I know, but being reminded of the fact that relationships are build or go bad for a reason, sometimes multiple times and can be fixed or left behind.
Mostly, this list reminded me to let go and let God.
What things are you trying to accept?
