Mamma Said There'd Be Days Like These
Ever had one of those days when you go to bed the night before with a to-list that is breeding to-do lists and a head cluttered with ambitious ideas, and then in the morning when your alarm clock plays it's god-forsaken tune, all your body seems to be saying is NO! No to the to-do list. No to all the over-ambitious activities you thought up the night before. No to leaving your bed. And a great big HECK NO to a morning gym session. Yes, you guessed it, today was that day. They come without warning, they really do. You know what I'm realizing? Sometimes it's okay to admit that all you want to do is light a fall candle, listen to Enya and avoid every bit of social interaction like the plague. Sometimes, but only sometimes, it's really okay to just darken the blinds, lie in bed, eat dark chocolate and pretend you didn't hear the phone ring. So, the next time you feel as though you don't have the brainpower to toast a crouton, just know that somewhere out there someone else is completely empathetic. It happens to the best of us.
