I wake up in the morning and within seconds my mind is racing.

Thoughts about the dream I had, the day ahead, what should have happened yesterday or the things I said.

This morning was different.

As I transferred from my dream state into consciousness I heard the melody of my beating heart and the sound was beautiful.

I lay there in appreciation acknowledging the fact that it was a blessing. I wondered how many people didn’t have that blessing this morning.
