Wow, I could not believe my on eyes when I saw the snow earlier today. I’m not used to snow late in the autumn and I had expected that it would come in December, but I was wrong. Being from Rio de Janeiro it’s fair to say that I’m more of a summer person and I prefer summer temperatures rather than minus degrees. However, I live in Norway and I cannot expect summer temperatures in November and that is why I have to appreciate the weather conditions instead of complaining about them. The snow will be here anyway and my complaints will not remove it. Actually, the snow is making the nature brighter which is helpful in this dark winter time since the snow is making a more positive atmosphere outside.
So, you might wonder where I’m going with all this, and why I’m telling you about my feelings for snow?
Well, it is because there are so many things in life that you are not in control of but that affect you in your everyday life. The weather conditions, the job market and so on are things that you can be mad at but you cannot change. Therefor in order to deal with them in the best possible way you have to have the right attitude as well. Yep, you read correctly! Your attitude is the key to have a good day and that attitude is something that you have to choose everyday. If you are waking up with a bad attitude you will have a bad day for sure. On the other side, waking up and choosing a good attitude will bring an incredible amount of good things into your life.
A good example of this is some thing that happened yesterday. My attitude has been bad lately due to not having a job which results in spending a lot of time alone while Johan is at work. Things haven’t turn out on a positive way for me which I believe is because of my attitude. Yesterday, I must admit that I woke up with a bad attitude and I didn’t want to attend the course at all, the reason was that we were going to spend the whole day outside. This was like a big crises for a Brazilian being used to Copacabana and not winters in Trondheim haha. However, while sitting in the buss on my way to the course, I decided that this attitude would only make my day worse. I was thinking that I would go and try to enjoy the beautiful sunny and cold weather as much as possible. And guess what? The day turned out to be a lovely day. We walked for about 30 minutes and we made a campfire so we could warm ourselves. This was a great opportunity to get to know other people from the course and not only the person sitting next to you.
I believe that my day turn out the way it did because I chose my attitude. My message is therefor that you should choose the attitude that makes your day and the day of the people next to you better.
Take care! ♥
