I don’t have much to say today other than it’s raining outside and I refuse to let it rain inside too. I know that’s something easier said than done but regardless of how things look, I’m determined to find the good around me.
I’m not having a great start since my alarm clock woke me up after only 2 hours of sleep due to dealing with terrible pain much of the night, but at least I got some sleep. It could be worse. I could have had no sleep at all.
I then discovered there are no clean towels in the bathroom so I have to postpone taking a shower, but at least I have a washer and dryer in my home and don’t need to load a pile of towels and clothes in my car and drive to a laundromat in order to wash them. It could be worse.
Did I mention it’s raining out? That means I will have to leave the house earlier than planned in order to fight my way through crazy traffic on wet roads. That’s always an adventure. But at least I have some place to go and a way to get there. It could be worse.
Every bad thing we face comes with its reasons to bring us down, but along with them there is always another perspective we can choose to see. My choice today…it could be worse. No matter what happens or how hard things may get, I know it could be worse so I keep pushing on.
I have been given a new day so it’s already a good day even with the rain, lack of sleep, no clean towels and crazy drivers. My emotions may be a bit on edge and I may feel rushed, exhausted and overwhelmed but you know, it’s okay to cry in the rain. Sometimes that’s the best time to cry.
The thing I keep telling myself as I get my day started, it could be worse. Now, where’s that rainbow. I may not find the end of it or a giant pot of gold waiting for me, but the smiles it provides are priceless.
