I am what most people would call a sucker.
I have a problem with keeping my brain to myself.
I’m very easily influenced by other people, places, and even animals. Because I’m always trying to please everybody else, I find that I often give up big parts of myself. This starts with my emotions and goes all the way down to my physical resources, including my indoor air temperature control and utility bills. You see, a few weeks ago I was wandering around outside when I stumbled upon a bird with a broken wing. I decided to take the bird inside to nurse it back to health. Unfortunately, when I took one stop inside the front door with my new bird friend it started freaking out. I don’t think about it liked the sensation of the ice cold air pumping out of my air conditioning unit, churning through my air duct work, and releasing for my air vents. Every time we got close to an air vent the bird was more upset, and I anticipated that it was the cool, dry air coming from my central cooling device. Eventually I decided that I was going to have to do something about the indoor air temperature control settings if this bird was going to get any rest. I turned off my air conditioning unit so that the indoor air temperature could increase a few degrees. The warmer temperatures made the bird much happier. The same could be said for my lower energy bill last month. However, it did not make me very happy.
