Last night I woke up and I thought it was morning. I went downstairs to make the coffee in the dark. I thought to myself, "I'll just go lay back down for a few minutes while the coffee is brewing" because it was cold. So I came back upstairs and got snuggled under the blankets and looked at the clock. 1 frickin 30. I just layed here in disbelief because I was wide awake and feeling good and ready to tackle the day. It was a let down for sure so I went back to sleep. At 5 am when the alarm went off, I want ready to get up so I hit snooze. I hit the snooze button every five minutes for the next hour. Finally at 6, I crawled back downstairs for the coffee. I have to leave at 6:15 to get to work on time. I was freezing so I through on my warmest clothes and headed to work in the rain. I stopped at a shop quik and bought more coffee which I spilled all over myself and the floor. I looked over at the checkout line and two young girls were kind of laughing. I said, " hey! I overslept and I didn't want to get up!" Then I smiled and walked over to them with a fresh cup of coffee. One girl looked at me and said, "ya. I'm hungover as hell." I said I was thankful I did not have a hangover....and I was. The other girl said, "I hope your day gets better!" I told her thanks and went to work. Where it did not get better but then again it did not suck as bad as the first hour either. And now?? I am home. I'm going to take a nap. A short one because I can. It's raining and I'm tired. I'm thankful that I have given myself permission to set aside my list of " shoulds" for peace and rest. It's an act of self love. So while some days aren't quite as glorious as others, this day is playing out quite nicely and I'm looking forward to what awaits me when I decide to get back up. More peace and self love I hope. Not one but 2 good things!! Yay!
