Breaking news! Today I took a shower.
It was awesome…until the temperature starting going crazy. The shower head poured out water at the perfect temperature and then all of a sudden the water turned against me and got really cold. At first I was pissed. I was like, “Come on shower. Why aren’t you the the perfect temperature that is to my liking you freakin’ butt head shower?!?” The second that thought came into my head I thought, “Wow! You are really being a spoiled brat right now. Varuca Salt freaking out because she wants a golden egg for Easter in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a saint compared to how you’re acting right now.
Varuca being a brat. Me being a brat.
Think about it. I woke up out of my warm bed, put on my luxurious soft and fuzzy bath robe, walked to the kitchen and turned on my faucet and guess what!?! Clean water came out of it and I poured myself a glass and drank it. Next I grabbed my phone so I could choose some tunes to listen while in the shower because I really enjoy singing and dancing while I’m in there. Yup, I am privileged enough to have a device that plays the music I want to hear on demand while I’m in the shower. I disrobe, twist the knob that controls the water temperature. Yup I have a knob that actually controls the temperature of the clean water for my shower. Hot water comes raging out of the shower head and hop into the shower that is located inside my home. I have all these amazing soaps, shampoos, conditioners and body oils placed neatly inside of my shower and a clean towel waiting for me to dry myself off with when I’m done. Actually I have two towels. One for my body and one for my hair. I have all of these things and I’m whining because the temperature isn’t right. Whaaaaaaattttt?
I am so lucky. So majorly epically lucky. I am not a victim of bad luck because my shower isn’t at a temperature of my liking. I am damn lucky to have a shower that spews out clean water directly into my home no matter what temperature it is. I literally have to walk about fifteen feet from my bed to the shower.
I chose to change my thoughts from what was wrong to what was right and it felt so much better.
I went from feeling like this…. to feeling like this!!
Do you sometimes find yourself taking how awesome your life is for granted? Do you take the role of the victim when things aren’t going your way? I would love to hear about it and if and how you are going to choose to reframe your thoughts from victim thoughts to thoughts of gratitude. Join the conversation at the bottom of this blog post.
