So, I woke up early this morning, and I'm not really sure why. I have every reason to stay in bed and sleep in, but it's as if something was summoning me into wakefulness.
The sunlight pours into my window as my curtains do all they can to mute it's brilliance. They do so to no avail. There is perhaps nothing more formidable than the sun. I've joined them now, my dear sweet curtains, in conceding to the onslaught of day.
I took a shower and made a mental note in my head to tidy up my room (we'll see how that goes). My mom called. She has this funny habit of calling me in the early morning--which is just fine. She makes me smile.
So, now, here I sit in front of my computer--overcome with the need to say something but not knowing what to say. I'm thinking about the week that is to come. It will be one of my busiest weeks in a long while. A voice in my head is telling me to soak in the quiet and absorb the peacefulness of this moment. Just a quiet hum from my computer is all there is to hear.
Before too long, my world will shift and grind its gears. Engines will rumble. Soon enough, I'll be whisked away--a million things will be calling for my attention.
There are those of us who wake up every day to work at a thankless job and interact with people we don't like--all the while wishing we were somewhere else. I've certainly had my share of this. Sometimes, it's hard enough just to get up in the morning. These days, it's become increasingly important to me to find my own path and take it. Otherwise, I would be solely responsible for my own unhappiness.
Breakfast is calling quite urgently. I must attend to it. The sun is shining brightly now as my curtains billow in its wake. Maybe in a little while, I'll treat myself to a nap after I clean my room (we'll see how that goes).
I hope I have a good week. I hope we all do.
