Since being here in Colombia, I am limited on what I can do since there is a language barrier. I don’t know how people can live in a country and not want to learn the language. I really wish I was here longer to learn the language so that I can do more easier. I can’t do everything I want to do, like talk the ear off everyone I meet, so today I noticed I am in a bit of a funk with my attitude.
One thing I noticed makes a major difference is I am really missing my dog. Having her to wake up to every morning automatically makes me happy. Dogs are amazing aren’t they? She is always in a good mood and having her around puts me in a good mood. I really am starting to get homesick for her.
Another thing I love to do when I get in a bad mood is listen to spunky music. Music is an emotional outlet for me so I turn to it a lot. It is therapy for sure.
One thing since being here is we walk a lot more than we do in the states and I LOVE that. Being outside and doing things really makes a big difference in my attitude. I think we could all use a little bit more outdoor activities. I definitely want to take that with me when I go back to the states. Exercise in general is supposed to be good for you so being outside taking a stroll is like double feel good.
So today…. is an attitude check and a little more sunshine in my day.
