It had already started raining for the day, so we went with the parking deck instead of the green, at the MUDRoom this morning. 2 other PAX and I came *somewhat* dressed in green and right away blasted the funky cool music of the popular electric violinist Lindsey Stirling! (I found traditional Irish fiddle music somewhat annoying real fast, so I went with a more hip option!)

We did some stretching together to ready our muscles, then –

For our Cooldown, we stretched it out while I shared –

The COT:

TWO THINGS we can try to do daily:

  1. Think of 3 things we’re grateful for (maybe even write them down in a gratefulness journal)
  2. Encourage at least ONE person with words in person, in a note, a text, or email

OUR attitudes will change for the better because of it, and we’ll affect someone else for the better too! And as a result we’ll surely feel “lucky,” or what I like to call BLESSED, as a result!
