The skunks have woken up from their winter sleep. I smelled skunk yesterday morning. It must be skunk mating season.
After Groundhog Day, i think of the smell of skunk as the next early warning sign tht spring is on its way--despite 12 inches of new-fallen snow.
This belief turns an unpleasant sensation (skunk smell) into a pleasant thought (Spring is just around the corner!)
Pleasant and unpleasant actually run our lives, but we are too busy to notice. Take time today to observe: The feeling of Pleasant leads to "I want more of that." (e.g., I want more thoughts of spring!) The feeling of Unpleasant leads to "I DON'T want any more of that." (Pee-yew. Skunk!)
Let me know what you find.
