Sunny days are powerful things, much like Mondays. This Monday I woke up early and exhausted, but ready to take on the world. It’s easy to take on the world when you are as fortunate as I am. I have a safety net, you see? And they’re my tribe.
The last three months have not been easy (I’m clearly developing a stiff upper lip!) and I expect the next three to be harder; things are happening and changing and sometimes change hurts. But there’s not much one can do about some changes other than deal with them, so I’ll deal with them.
Today, unlike most days before now and certainly unlike most days from now on, I feel like I can take it and this is a feeling I want to cherish and nurture. I want to come back to this sunny Monday when the days are grey and the weeks have become a blur. I want to take in the fresh air of this quiet morning and embrace the feeling that I will be alright, even if I can’t quite see it now. You know, that’s my favourite part of being older – knowing this too, shall pass.
:: my tribe. people that will drop anything they’re doing to give me what I need when I need it.
:: sunny mornings. just when you need them the most.
:: knitting. keeping me focused when I need it the most.
:: the people I work with. how they make my day, every single day.
I hope you too had the sunniest of Mondays, wherever you are. The sun is enough and plenty to us all… much as a smile!
