Starting over

Woke up this morning and got out of bed.

Stepped on something sharp that really hurt.

As I hobbled around with my pain, I stubbed my toe on the door.

Finally got to the kitchen and found the coffee pot unplugged.

As I glanced out the window I saw it was raining and miserable.


Went back to bed and pulled the covers over me.

Took a few deep breaths, thought of something I was grateful for,  and then got up and tried again. 

Sometimes it is just a good idea to start over with a new perspective.
