Today was not my day.
It was hot (the car thermometer read 101 on the way home), I was tired, and I was sore from yesterday (biking ~17 miles). We had some troublesome campers--ones who kept wandering off or not wanting to participate. One kid even punched me in the stomach for no apparent reason (it hurt).
Nothing was right.
I got home and I just wanted to cry.
Sometimes it just feels like that--
The little things all add up like building blocks
and then topple over,
crushing me underneath.
I need to let it all out...
...and then stop, breathe in and out
and know that it is going to be okay.
It's not the end of the world.
There is so much more out there than
the bad things that I'm letting weigh me down.
There is so much more beauty in everything;
I just have to find it.
So today, I'm forgetting about the frustrations--
I won't let them bury me.
I am stronger than that,
and I will be okay.
It's been a few hours now since I told myself that
and you know what?
Now that I've calmed down,
taken a breather,
everything is just all right.
Even good, I might venture to say.
How are you today?
