The topic: Ponderance

----------------------------------------------

So, we’ve had some reallly nice days this week.  In fact, we never shut the house up last night.  Slept with all the doors and windows open.  The heat came on this morning and Brian got up and turned it off. 

Right now, it’s 54° outside.  It’s about ten degrees warmer in the house.

Now, here’s my ponderance.  If it was 54° outside right now and I knew it wasn’t going to get over the mid-sixties today, I’d be freezing.  The house would be shut up and the heater would be running.

But I know today is going to be warm.  Probably up into the 80s.  So, I’m okay with socks, sweatpants and a long sleeved tee. I’m comfortable. 

So, why is that?  Why does the knowledge that it’s going to warm up a bit today keep me warmer right now than knowing it wouldn’t warm up much? Even though the outside temperature at this point is the same either way?



Good question and I tink it has evrything to do with the state of mind when it is anticipating something nice… it just allows you to ‘be’

Hope you feel better and better every day!
