Happy Birthday to my wonderful, amazing, spectacular DAD!!
You know those days when you wake up and everything just kind of sucks? Like when you get into a fight or something bad happens the night before–you just wake up and as it all comes rushing back to you, you wish you never would’ve opened your eyes and you wonder how you ever fell asleep in the first place?
That’s how I feel today. Today is a day that I could easily never get out from under the covers and just sit and stew in my own depressing thoughts and cry and be miserable. It’s practically all I did yesterday.
I feel like that’d be easier than getting up and trying to be productive. I wonder why it’s so much easier to just wallow than it is to get up and shower and get dressed and stuff.
Well, I don’t know for sure, but in my limited experience, I’ve noticed that the things worth having are the things you have to try the hardest to achieve.
Like happiness. Or freedom.
Luckily, I have an awesome family and awesome friends who have shown me that it’s on these days when it’s the most important to get up, get ready and be productive.
“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches on the soul–and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” a couple lines of poetry from Hope by Emily Dickinson.
