I wake up everyone morning excited about life! (ok, maybe not on mornings when it’s early and I didn’t want to get up yet) BUT once I am awake I am excited to experience another day. I can’t wait to help people, to put a smile on someone’s face – on everyone’s face! I can’t wait to light up the room, to be a shoulder to cry on, a friend to talk to. I can’t wait to make a difference, to hold a door open, to talk to everyone!
Then I get out of bed.
And my dogs start barking.
And my car makes a funny noise.
And my boyfriend and I argue about something trivial.
And I get stuck in traffic and almost ran over by every bad driver in town.
And I am late for work.
And my boss gives me too much work.
And I interact with people.
And experience bad customer service.
And have to help rude people.
And when I finally make it back home to my couch, I let out a deep breath and unwind. And go to bed.
Then it’s morning and I am excited to do it all over again! Because I woke up again! I was blessed with another day of life! Despite all of the things that just might piss me off today, I have been given another day to try and keep a smile on my face and make a difference in the world.
And that is awesome.
I accept the challenge. Come at me world.
