I should have known. Actually, I did know. Today was destined to be a challenge.
It started when I fell back to sleep this morning after my alarm went off. That absolutely never happens. It continued on into the closet where I tried on a couple of outfits and nothing felt right. It was when I was everywhere that my umbrella wasn’t on this rainy day. Everything was just kinda hard. Really hard.
I listened to Glen Campbell on my way home, if that tells you anything. And I knew exactly what I was going to do when I got there. Wash this day down the drain.
And so I did…for the most part.
You see…there were pleasant moments sprinkled throughout my day. A picture a smoky Montana sky sent from a friend. Texts of encouragement. A nap in the park. A hug from a friend. So I didn’t wash it all away.
I took a long hot shower and washed my hair. Not sure what it is about clean legs and wet dog noses, but this time I didn’t care. Nyx was just so happy to have me home. It’s a great to be loved that much. Another pleasantry.
Even on the hard days you can find those little blessings. Focus on those and wash the rest down the drain.
Have a peaceful evening. Live in the moment, and don’t worry about tomorrow until it gets here. ♥️
