Ready, Steady, Go

Are you ready
Ready for the rain to fall
It will wash over you
Taking away the grit
From all the pain
You have endured

Hold steady
Steady and on course
For the future holds hope
that will sustain your dreams
for all the happiness
your heart can hold

Let’s go
Go and fulfill a destiny
That began with your first breath
It got a little lost along the way
But now the sky has a rainbow
With your pot of gold waiting

Happy and Grateful – Day 25

I have undertaken a challenge this year.  I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel.  No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment.  Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day.  Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog.  Let’s find some fun!

Tough day… I don’t want to write, I don’t want to read, I don’t want to listen to music, I don’t want to watch TV or a movie.  I really don’t even want to breathe at the moment.  But this is about happiness and gratitude.  I say it everyday that there is always SOME small moment that is good.  It is hard to find it today.

My boyfriend was home sick from work today.  I kept up on how he was feeling throughout the day… he never asked how I was.  It has been snowing all day and the moisture adds to my aches and pains.  I am sick of grey days and short ones.  I really need spring.

But back to happiness.  I had a place to stay today in the warmth –  no outdoor job, no going to run errands, no driving in the snow.  So my shelter was my happiness today.  With my depression and anxiety here with the pain today being home is like having a security blanket – warm and comfortable.  I am grateful I can go to sleep and wake up to a fresh (and hopefully better) start tomorrow.

Now to see about the tricky part… sleep.
