Light of Day

New Year's Day Sunrise Doubled
I was mourning the loss of the entire weekend this morning as I walked the mile to my office (I typically get off the train early so I can take a walk each day, regardless how busy work is) when I realized my attitude is under my control, no one else's. Yes, I battle wintertime blues, and yes, I've been buried with too much stress and too many deadlines lately. But I am the captain of my own ship, and I have the power to smile, even when the world seems as though it's trying to break me.

I can smile. I will smile. And that's what it takes.

Attitude. It's all about attitude.


  1. Gorgeous photo and beautiful post to go along with it!

  2. I often have to put on the happy face and walk around in it before I feel it. :0) HOpe those winter blues brighten up. :)

  3. Ahhh, something I need to remember as I stress out this weekend. Love the picture! Thanks for the encouragement.

  4. Lovely photo.

    I agree, we can decide to smile and to be positive. The days are now a lot longer than a week ago :)

  5. Very true and I needed to be reminded of that. I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. You're so right. Attitude is one of the hardest things to control that's in our control. Beautiful picture and thanks for the reminder. =D

  7. You always make me smile...that's for sure!
    See? You brighten my day just by blogging! :)

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
