It’s Rotten


Reek, rank, rancid…

My life has spoiled!

It stinks right now

And I can’t get the smell out.

Only your cologne

Would cover the stench

Of loneliness and despair

And make me breathe easy.

Breathe in your

Fresh air of positivity

And leave the stagnant smell

Of a life of negativity behind.

Happy and Grateful – Day 2

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!

Today was a day of catch-up still.  I must have slipped by Father Time one too many times as I am not as resilient after staying up late (well honestly it was all night) like I did New Years Eve.  The fatigue had me caught off guard again today twice with naps I didn’t plan.  But that is ok.  I just started the day over and got three mornings instead of one!  I figure each time I awakened was a chance to start fresh instead of another mistake from the evil fatigue monster.  There is always a plus to a negative and today was no different.  I am glad for the opportunity to quench the fatigue and find a little gratitude in the process.  What are you grateful for today?
