So, the a/c is back on after enjoying several gloriously cool days and I’ve been trying to psyche myself up for summer.
It’s definitely my least-favorite season –I despise heat and humidity and both are annoyingly abundant in Georgia from May through September.
It’s been a somewhat trying week, so I didn’t greet today’s warm weather with the best of attitudes. But because I believe that attitude changes everything, I am trying to change mine for the better by making a list of things that I like about summer. I need to encourage myself for the long, hot days ahead.
Trouble is, I could only come up with five:
2. Going to the beach
3. A break from schoolwork
AND…that’s about all I’ve got.
What about you? What would you put on a list of “Things to Love About Summer”?
