A New Day

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.
