What matters is how you spin it.
All of us wake up in the morning wishing for just 10 more minutes. We take whatever means necessary to pry our eyes open before we dive into work. Whether that’s outside of the home or in. Whether it’s pushing papers or pushing strollers. We care for our kids, our pets, our husbands, our business, ourselves. There are errands to run and appointments to set and deadlines to meet. We throw a dinner together and clean up and watch TV and tap away on our computers. We yearn for connections. A home too messy and tensions too tight. With the weight of the world on our shoulders, we unwind however we can. Then we put it all to bed before we start again in the morning.
Of course, there are the exceptions and curveballs. There are tragedies as there are triumphs. Life has its twists and turns, but it doesn’t bend. With luck and time, it tends to revert back to an altered state of the same.
It’s all in the way we feel. It’s how we see the mundane minutiae of the everyday. When presented with the choice, would you recall the morning laughter or the spousal argument that afternoon? Would you rather strive for the extraordinary or be content in settling for normalcy? No one way is right or wrong.
It’s how we take away what we are given.
There are kids and parents. Families and friends. Laughter and cries. Embraces and fights. Many different descriptions, but they all equal the same. What matters is how you spin it. What do you see that no one else has? What do you choose to remember? The hour to hour, day to day. The structure stays familiar, it’s who we are that renders it unique.
No matter how you spin it.
