I woke up this morning and immediately thought about how tired I was. It was a busy weekend with late nights and I was feeling it this Monday. And then I stopped myself. I watched the sun rise, realized that despite the foot of snow, today is the first day of Spring, and I changed my words.
If I spend today talking about how tired I am, I am damn well going to be tired. But if I look past my exhaustion (even typing the word drains me) at the sunshine, the melting snow and a to-do list that inspires and excites me, I feel good. While I may feel tired today, I’m going to refrain from saying it. I’m going to instead feel excited, inspired, and awake. Because I’m pretty sure no one ever says they feel awake, but what if we did?
