looking for inspiration in the midst of gloom

the weather has been absolutely horrible the last few days. i have just recently realized how the weather plays such an important role in my state of mind. i can definitely see a difference in my mood when it is nice and sunny and when it is dark and rainy. needless to say, it has been a struggle to do even the simplest of tasks. the hardest part has been trying to motivate myself and look at the bright side of things instead of the obvious. my work has reflected my attitude in that i have not gotten much done, but i have made some significant progress this afternoon (hopefully, i have gotten out of this rut *fingers crossed & knocking on wood*). i have successfully compiled the processor design for the fpga, however, i was forced to make some changes in order to succeed in this. now, i must run some more simulations and ensure that everything functions as it should. this has given me a bit of inspiration as i thought this would be a never-ending battle once i started a week ago. after many failed attempts at trying to simply satisfy the compiler, i finally stepped backed and started from scratch. at first, i thought this would take a while, but once i got started, i was understanding things more and was actually able to use a good bit of the code that i already had. turns out, i did not need to re-invent the wheel at all.

Nice blog, I like the way they make you set up a web site for your candidacy.
Good news is that the weather does get better in the spring! You’re heading down the right path. Don’t let little setbacks get you down; you are correct in your assessment of attitude directing your actions. Start the day with the right attitude and you'll find things will work out with out forcing it. There is always more than one way to skin a cat….
