” Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” ~ John Ruskin
Today I’m at work drinking hot tea looking out the window on this brisk cool, almost cold, Winter day in Philadelphia. It’s beautiful. I saw this adorable squirrel come out of the trash can here with what appears to be a McDonald’s french fry, hold it in his little paws and eat the entire thing then kept going back finding more, sitting straight up, and eating them with his little hands. It was the most amazing thing to witness. I stood there and watched, awe-inspired. I took lots of (blurry) photos then I just stood and watched, in pure joy. Somehow, I found it so healing.
I haven’t been working much because I only work at a store where we mostly sell ice cream. My boss closes a lot because of “bad weather.” it’s not really bad, just bad for business. And bad for my phone bill. It’s backed up a lot and my phone service has been suspended only temporarily but that’s why I haven’t been posting here much. I have so much to write about! But I use my app to post here, which needs the Internet. I’m using the wifi at work now.
I have been sulking about not working, not just over the lack of money but I just love to work and feel that I “should” be working but I remind myself that there is always a bright side! It’s not good to be out of work but until I get more hours or a new job, I have so much time to do whatever I want (that doesn’t require money lol) more frequently than when I have work. I have been doing art journaling, reading, taking pictures…which I love! but somewhere in my mind, I keep scolding myself for not doing what I “should” be doing…being a responsible adult working.
But since at this moment I don’t have complete control over working or not, I can work on my attitude and look at the goodness still all around, this little squirrel happily eating a french fry!
I feel the life, the passion, the will..and I can’t help but smile. 😀
I’m wishing you much love today and always…
