Put A Positive Spin On It

by jenny sansouci on September 15, 2008

i always say to myself that if my life were a movie, i need to make sure it’s one that i’d want to watch. not one that i’d get bored of or want to fast forward through. so i try and spice it up as much as possible. for instance, this morning i turned a not-great situation into a something really fun.

so i woke up this morning and went to take a shower. i turned on the water and it was freezing cold. like….arctic temperatures, people. even when i turned the hot water all the way up and the cold water off, it didn’t help. yikes.

so here’s my chance to turn this situation into something fun. i decided to change into reality-show mindset and pretend that i was competing for something (you know, like a million bucks, bret michaels, whatever). in my reality show i had to partake in one of 2 challenges – either taking a freezing cold shower, or eating animal parts. so immediately i felt so incredibly lucky that i was chosen for the freezing cold shower challenge instead of the pig testicles challenge. the shower actually felt AWESOME when comparing it in my mind to what all the “other contestants” were doing.

anyway i thought i’d share. maybe this will help some people out there. next time you are forced to take a really cold shower, just pretend everyone else is eating animal testicles. you will feel so lucky.

Haha, that’s pretty great. Yeah, I’d pass on the animal balls too.
