It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Thoughts on Getting Out of Bed

Some mornings you wake up and it might be sunny and appealing to get out from under the covers. Then there are mornings when staying in bed all day might be the best idea you will have .

Then there are mornings that you lie there and think and those can be the worst of all mornings.

You might think of the past, how you should have done this or that or said this or that or wish you had it to do all over again .. making it last.

You might think of the future, something you always figured you could count on knowing something about , plans made, ideas waiting to happen, but then things happen and you realize that every day can be a surprise or a void in your life and you really have no idea what to expect.
Mostly you just make plans and hope they work out.

Then there are days that seem to be exact duplicates of the day before and you wonder, is this the future, one day after another .. the same .. but not ?

You try to make vague plans for things to do and people to see and places to go .. giving a thought to the future and hoping nothing else happens to change things ..

But then, sometimes Things are changed and there is no semblance of what was planned and what might be counted on ... those are the challenges.
Everyone has some sort of challenge in life and some are mostly impossible to deal with and some are often times easy to cope with .. but then there are the sort that you live with and cannot change.

Those are the hard ones.

All I can say from this point of view is that it is important to get out of bed in the morning.
That is a big step forward for some people.

Take a shower and get dressed and pretend the world is the same world it was just a few months ago.

Try not to sit and think.
Thinking can be bad for you.

And when all else fails, Get a Kitten.

Life will never be the way it was or exactly the way you want it to be but at least a kitten can keep you amused. And sometimes in the middle of a long dark lonely night, the sound of a tiny kitten purring can be a comfort.
