Do you like being cold?
I sure don't!
I've spent most of my life in the Southern part of the U.S., and I don't even remember owning a true "coat" until I received a letter jacket in high school.
This means on rare Texas days when the temperature stays below 40 degrees, I bundle up to go outside :)
But lately, I've been bundling up INSIDE as well.
You see, my house has single-paned windows. That means heating and cooling it is bit trickier and more costly than heating and cooling a house with more energy-efficient, double-paned windows.
When my husband and I first purchased our house, we looked into how much it would cost to replace every single window and door. The price was way more than we were interested in investing since we don't plan to stay here forever.
So for a while I "tolerated" being cold. And I forgot about it somewhat. It became normal.
But I was still uncomfortable.
Then I came down with an ACTUAL cold--snotty nose and all--and suddenly my detestation for FEELING cold was back at the forefront of my mind.
I decided I was no longer willing to tolerate this discomfort.
That realization got me thinking creatively about alternative solutions to my problem.
It got me to take action:
What are YOU tolerating in your life? What are you ready to change? And how can you create your own solutions.
