Fresh Opportunity

May 6, 2013


I thought this would be a great day to start a Monday. Every single Monday I get my butt out of bed and get to the gym, just as I do every other day of the week. Than I get myself to work and log into FB to see what happened after I turned into pumpkin the night before at 9:00, when I disconnect from the "interwebz" for a few hours.

More often than not I am greeted with all the cases of the "Mondays" that people post on FB... and yes, I have there too. Sometimes I think we forget that its Monday for everyone... and we all know what thats like. But days like today it kind of got to me.

Last night right I broke a tooth while I was eating dinner. Damnit it pissed me off. I just got a crown and I was really mad that the tooth right next to it is the one that cracked. No fault of my wonderful dentist  (no really, I love him and don't blame him, I blame my crappy teeth), but its just plain inconvenient. I wasn't planning on  making a trip to the dentist, nor do I really want to spend the money on yet another crown. However, I made a choice. Get really pissed and be upset that something happened I couldnt control... or... finish eating and deal with it in a rational way. Things can always be worse. At least I have teeth.

So, I hugged and kissed Hubs as I do every night before I head to "La La Land" and headed up to bed. After the bed time routine, I get in bed and open my nook. My mind, for just a half an hour totally escapes the day. Nothing matters. I am with the characters while they do what they do (and if you read the same kinds of books that I do its amazing I can actually get to sleep after reading).

After a few chapters I put my nook down and settle in to sleep. My mind is clear and ready for thoughts. In my past I have learned how hard it is to fall asleep with things on my mind so I have begun to end the day with the most positive thing I can think of (and no, this cant happen all the time... sometimes there are just things you cant stop thinking of). I am not going to tell you my thoughts for that time of night... not that they are x-rated or anything, but its a special moment for me.

The point is... I sleep much better with a positive thought. I could have been all pissed and rip shit about my tooth and the fact I had to now pay for and actually go to the dentist again... I could have been thinking about the fact that its a Monday the next day and all the work I have to do this week... but no. Tomorrow is new, tomorrow is a "fresh opportunity."
