I woke up this morning in my usual fashion as of late by hitting the snooze button enough times to make me have to hurry to get ready for work, leaving no time to iron my pants. Wrinkled and somewhat lethargic, I headed to work stopping at Starbucks where, lo and behold, they were giving away free muffins. Not a bad way to start the day. Maybe it is the extra sugar in my bloodstream or maybe it’s the sense that spring is coming but I have a fresh sense of energy today that I haven’t felt in a long time. I remembered today that I can change it all if I want to. I don’t have to spend my day sitting in a world of vacuous energy. I can change it but I have to change it. That’s the tricky part. I can’t will this to happen with dreams of winning the lottery or thinking that my novel will write itself. I have to play the lottery and write the novel. Maybe If I won the lottery I’d have more time to write but if I never win the lottery than I’ll never have all that time so perhaps I should just get to the writing and play the lottery as a back up. That might be the best plan. So I’m still not sure where this renewed sense of energy has come from, it’s probably not the muffin since I rarely get inspired by free muffins, but what ever it is I’ll take it and make things happen.
