A Gift of Time
I wake up early
I should still be sleeping
I can read or write
I can go back to sleep
I think of slicer topics
I can hear each second pass by
I close my eyes, reflect on my reading . . . sleep now?
I read some more
I stare at the clock, count backwards, close my eyes tighter
I begin to write
I wish I were back asleep
But sometimes my best ideas are my morning ideas
My spirit says “JOYFUL” with this found time
My body says “tired” and it’s way too early to be awake.
Extra Reading and Writing Time Today!
Starting the day our tired and curmudgeonly!
When faced with polar opposites, which do you choose?
How does your choice impact you?
This post was inspired by Erika Victor’s Slice “That Happy/Sad Feeling” found here.
