It’s early morning. Darkness fills my window. I rise, stretch, contemplate getting up and out of this warm bed. It is just another day, but a day filled with whatever I want. Today is a day to recharge, regroup, and contemplate. It is a day of grace given to me, by myself. A day off to live my life and not just hear others tell of theirs. Today I will smell the air, to hike the woods, reach for the inner peace as I see fit. Today I will extend grace to me.
