I love summertime! Summer is my favorite season, and I enjoy the long days and brisk nights. However, what I don’t necessarily like is the scorching heat!
Sweating my way through my favorite season isn’t as hard for me as freezing throughout the winter, but it’s still a nuisance. Let’s be honest; unless we’re on a beach somewhere, sipping cocktails next to a (preferably) large body of water, the heat only makes our days harder.
Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it. It’s all about the attitude. Heat is sensual, romantic, and mysterious.
I deal with the heat with smart air conditioning or by following the “mind over matter” mantra. When that fails, I recall the best hot weather quotes that help me persevere.
