Lately, I’ve been trying to stop grumbling (so much) about Oregon (but THE WEATHER!) and focus on the good things. It’s come to my attention that I live here now, and my negative attitude may be getting in the way of feeling more content on a daily basis.
One of the small things I’m trying to do is appreciate my new preschool commute. My son just recently started going (and saved my sanity), and so I make the short 10 minute trip 6 times a week now. I’ve noticed that the commute is quite lovely. It’s on a back road that winds between evergreen trees and other non-evergreen trees that were bright reds, yellows, and oranges a few weeks ago. Sure, there are pot holes that emerge daily and I drive through a construction site and there’s one low-lying part that I’m terrified will end up flooding at some point during the year…but honestly, I’m trying to see these things as part of the adventure.
