Do you ever wake up and feel like hiding under the covers all day long?
Maybe you went to bed too late and didn't get the rest you need. Maybe you had a child crawl into your bed at 4am and interrupt your sleep. Or maybe you just feel like taking a day off from all the pressures of adulting.
This was me this morning, after getting out of bed and looking in the mirror, shocking myself with how tired I looked. I briefly fantasized about crawling back into bed and sleeping all day long.
Last year and even earlier this year, when I was deep in grief over my Mom's death, I spent a lot of my days dragging my feet, weighed down by sadness and disbelief and disillusionment. More often than not I woke up dreading the day ahead, wishing I was somewhere I wasn't, fantasizing about a reality other than the one I lived in.
But today was different. Just as quickly as the escapist thoughts came, I made the conscious decision that today was going to be a great day. Because the day is going to happen whether we like it or not. And everyday we have a choice to make it as good a day a possible, or to resist what is and hide under the covers.
