Ever have one of those days, when it’s both exactly what you hope it will be and simultaneously not quite right. Like a sweater that was so perfect you bought it, but now, that’s here, it’s on you, there’s an itchiness, a discomfort that you hadn’t noticed before?
That’s a bit like today.
This day was fantastic in so many ways. A relaxing cup of coffee and quiet time this morning, following by a good workout with my mini-me who was particularly adorable in the way she was shadowing my every move. I was even down 5lbs this morning! What could be better than that right? When I look at the list of all we did today, it adds up to a fantastic day of togetherness and productivity:
Ultimate Pi-Day appreciated,
paint supplies gathered,
bench hauled and first-coated,
Perhaps my mood matched the cool grayness of the day outside, a change compared to the welcome warmth and sun of this past week. Maybe it was the fact that my post from yesterday was late…again. I love this challenge, this writing, this reflecting. It’s provided so much over the years. Yet, the disappointment I feel when I miss a deadline or fall behind, it’s a heaviness that’s hard to describe.
Whatever the cause, I look forward to a new day, a fresh start, a more positive energy from within. Tonight, I’ll slide this ill-fitting sweater over my head and pray that a change in attitude and perspective is as easy a change to make!
