Have I mentioned that I’m not a morning person? Except here’s the thing – when I have some additional reason – something deeper and bigger than getting up for work the same as I do every day – I get up, get ready, feel good about it, and can relax into the rest of my day. I can make a smoothie AND coffee. I can go for a fifteen minute walk before I even have to get in the car. I can write a blog post. Maybe I can even do two of these things; we are about to find out.
Have you ever taken a personal inventory of resentments you carry? Me neither, and it feels like it has the potential to make for one hell of an angry and sad weekend. I’m hopeful that tomorrow morning’s phone call will involve some way to look at this part of the process without wanting to either go out and pick a fight with not only the people at the top of my list, but anyone I see, or curl up in a ball under a pile of blankets because I am a terrible person who resents ALL THE THINGS.
And now, the rest of the morning. Hope yours is wonderful, and your weekend full of beautiful things. And you know what? I hope mine is, too. I think I’m allowed to want that for all of us.
