August 4, day 4.
After being so emotional yesterday, I was completely useless last night. Even after I felt guilty enough to get off Facebook, I sank into the couch in my dark, quiet living room. By the time I was read to go upstairs, I could barely keep my puffy eyes open. But I slept restlessly - tossing and turning - and couldn't get up to help Haley out the door this morning. She worked two doubles in a row and had to be at work by 6am again today....I don't know how she does it!
I finally pulled my head off the pillow and saw the sun shining through the leaves outside my bedroom window. Today is a new day. I took the pups out and took a couple really good deep breaths. Today is a new day. I washed my face and looked in the mirror to see clear eyes, no redness or swelling. Today is a new day. I stood in the dark, cool shower and felt all the pain and insecurity of yesterday wash away. Today is a new day.
Please, if someone has a dream that is different than yours, speak delicately to them. You may think they're crazy, but that doesn't mean they're wrong, less intelligent, or less successful than you. Just different.
