Changing My Attitude

'If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.' — Maya Angelou.

So here I am in Los Angeles and I HATE the weather. I know most of the people in the world would switch places with me in a New York minute-anyone? Really? Have a flat in New York and hate the weather?-But I do not enjoy hot weather.

True most of Los Angeles, especially the west side-Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Manhattan Beach, West Hollywood, etc...has great weather-it usually doesn't go over 80 and doesn't drop below 50-40 overnight in the winter.

I don't live in that area. The part that I live in has Arizona-esque weather and it sucks and usually I piss and moan from mid January until December about how evil it is.

*If I could afford to live in Santa Monica, or Malibu, or somewhere "over the hill"-as well say in the Valley-I would.

This all said, I was in Seattle this summer and one of my FB friends complained every single day on his page about the cold-even on the sunny days-and this summer the PNW had tons-broke records even-and that was so beyond annoying that I decided he was like how I am here. Hating the weather so much that we can't even see when the weather we want shows up. So instead of complaining all the time I am changing my attitude until I can get my arse back to New York city-where it's freezing and you pay through the nose for 200 sq foot apartment.

I can't change that I live here right now, I can't change the weather-if I could I would be a bagillionaire-and so I am going to enjoy the awesome things that this city has to offer and be positive instead of negative.

This is a photo from Christmas on the beach. A Malibu rum drink in Malibu California where the water was gorgeous and the sky was blue and the sun was shining!

I'm changing my attitude and enjoying what I have and hopefully next year I'll be in gray, dark, cold and wet old New York.
