My whole life I’ve had serious fomo (I hate that saying, but it works here) in regards to sunshine. Ask Barrett, he thinks I’m nuts. If one side of the street is shady, I have to walk on the sunny side. I move my chair around the patio to follow the sun. If we go to the foggy coast and the forecast reads sunny in Portland, I get a little irritated. The list goes on. .
Well, I realized when I was home in CT, that I can trace this back to growing up. And even blame it on my family’s house tucked into the woods. It’s surrounded by big trees, meaning it only gets sunshine in the afternoon. I had familiar feelings rush back to me of being almost angry that the sun was up and shining in other parts of town all day, but I only got to enjoy it for a couple hours. I drank my coffee sitting in the driveway, and made my brother move the picnic table to the far corner of the yard in the afternoon to catch it again. I always wished we lived in a big field on top of a hill to catch every second of light possible. .
Needless to say, this feeling hasn’t gone away since moving to Portland So this week with the forecast calling for 90s and sunshine, I’m going to need alllll the motivation to stay inside and edit. Can anyone relate? .
If you’ve made it this far, leave me any quotes or tips you have to stay focused and motivated and I’ll love you forever!
