Gratitude: Air Conditioning

This post is part of our Gratitude series, which reminds us to celebrate the ordinary things as we navigate life at home.

Today we’re grateful for… air conditioning.

Too obvious? We think not.

We confess — this time of year, it’s easy to fall into a predictable conversational pattern. You know how it goes — someone asks how you are doing, and your automatic response becomes a complaint about the weather.

True, it’s ridiculously hot out there. But, how does dwelling in the negativity really help anyone?

Instead of further weighing ourselves down, let’s go the opposite route. Let’s choose to express a little extra gratitude for what we do have this time of year — air conditioning. It’s pretty incredible what our AC systems can do, allowing our homes and workplaces to be comfortable spaces amidst this season of intense heat.

So thanks, AC for doing your thing. As desert dwellers, we have super high expectations of you, and it’s pretty wonderful that you keep running.
