Was working on a bit of writing for somewhere else the other day, when I realized that, more than any other, this is the part of the year I struggle to get through. I celebrate Spring with dirt and seeds, Winter is exciting and beautiful, and Fall is probably my favorite season of all...but Summer, particularly the late July and August part of Summer...meh.
When I start feeling "meh" in general, I've found that a good anecdote is to stop and count my blessings. Like, literally, I pull out my little moleskin and sit there until I've written down three happy things. It's not a cure-all, but it does help.
So, I think that's what I'm going to do for the next few weeks--try to celebrate rather than just slogging through. Instead of just whining that it's hot, I'm going to complete the thought with something nice.
Feel free to chime in with your favorite Summer things.
