Another Day

Agh! It's Monday! I used to be happy about Mondays because Switched at Birth would come on and I could do more Sean Berdy swooning and what-not, but NOW?! NOW The Lying Games has taken its place! And Mondays have become Glumdays once more. Who needs Mondays anyway?

But more to the point, I am just glad to have woken up to another beautiful day. The fact is, I am always grateful to wake to see the sun. To hear my mom yelling. To feel the carpet under my toes when I finally lug myself out of bed. It's a good thing to be able to have your health. To find yourself a member of a new day. To have the luxuries of a computer screen nearby and food in the fridge.

Sometimes, I feel like even the bad things are worth it. I know... that's when you KNOW your grateful, right? But if I didn't know a little hardship, I wouldn't be able to appreciate days like this. Even if they are Mondays. And even if all I have to do is type, type away hoping someone else is thankful for this new day, too.



  1. I love the way you phrased that "To find yourself a member of a new day". It's such a simple thing, and one that we often take for granted. But it's pretty awesome, really, isn't it?

  2. It's seriously the most awesome part of living. I often take the "waking up" part for granted, and yet THAT is what I should be most grateful for. It's crazy how these epiphonies come about, but I'm always surprised by how much I really need them when they do.
