Awhile back, I did a couple posts using the Smelly Train/Nice Bag idea that I stole from a UK blogger. I don't remember who it was, and have lost track of the blog, so if it was you, sorry (and post your blog link). The whole premise behind it was that if you have a negative thought, you should counteract it with a positive one. The writer was traveling on a stinky train, but she was carrying a nice purse. So here we go, with the winter version:
It's cold out!/I can wear cute sweaters and boots!
I don't want to shovel snow!/Now I don't need to go to the gym and lift weights!
There's not very much daylight!/You don't have to feel bad about calling it an early night with a book!
It's hard to run in the winter!/It's still better than the treadmill!
Heat is so expensive!/Now I can break out the fuzzy slippers and fleece blankets! Also, in the words of moms everywhere, "Put on a sweater."
I miss wearing my cute summer clothes!/Two words: down miniskirt. Also, jackets! (yes, I have a jacket problem. I can't stop buying them).
It's icy out!/My microspikes work great!
I can't hike!/But I can snowshoe, snowboard and cross country ski!
Winter is so long!/It really makes me appreciate summer!
What am I missing? What are your smelly train/nice bag moments lately (they don't have to be about winter)? Love winter and dislike summer? Throw some out there!
