Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
At the beginning of every day, no matter how messed up yesterday might have been, I have the promise of a brand new start. A new start and more time to appreciate all that I have….
- my amazing family
- my career and job…OH EM GEE I HAZ a job!!!
- a circle of amazing, loving people whom I can call friends
- the Big Top circus tent…again, OH EM GEE I HAZ a home!!!
- my good health and a body that seems to be able do things many 48 year old bodies can’t or won’t do.
Somedays things can seem like they are pretty bleak and sucky and I do tend to wallow in the muck of all that from time to time because that is my nature. But thankfully the day ends, I hopefully get a good night’s sleep…or at least some sleep…and it is another day, a different day, a brand-new day. The problems that surround me remain with all their stress and worry but still it is a new day with potential to do things differently.
What I have going for me most of all is a sense of optimism which I work hard at maintaining in this time of overwhelming pessimism.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
