Our air conditioner hit the skids last weekend and we had a couple of days this week with no cool air while the temps outside rose to 100 and continue to climb. We didn't panic. Lots of people in our area do not have a/c. Some people in Yuma, Arizona, where we used to live, located only 8 miles from hell, don't have a/c. We knew we were not gonna die. Be uncomfortable? Yes. So what? We were. Uncomfortable, that is. But, not horribly. After the sun went down, we opened the windows, started the fans and it got comfortable.
TAKE AWAY: It's okay to be uncomfortable.
I am grateful to be uncomfortable sometimes.
