Life's a Beach

  • Monday, February 9, 2009

Always look on the bright side of life... hum along with me if you recognize that Monty Python tune. Silly movie, but a poignant statement about our attitudes when we are presented with less than desirable situations.
For example, this weekend I went camping and could have focused on the fact that I slept in a tent in freezing temperatures or I could remember the beautiful sunrise that greeted me every morning. I could complain about the sand covering almost everything I touched or be happy I didn't have to drive back and forth to the beach and pay for an expensive hotel.
Also, I could have been upset about the raccoons and squirrels that kept coming after my food but... you know what, I was not only annoyed but totally freaked out by these little pests. They had no fear and were freakishly strong. I watched as the raccoons lifted the lid on an ice chest even after I sat a heavy log on it. As I ate, squirrels dove from trees above to get the food sitting next to me at the table. They truly put the wild in wildlife.
