Dawning of a new day…

Sunrise on the Eastern Prom

I don’t often make it up for sunrise, if only because most nights I’m up until one or so in the morning, but this morning (thanks in large part to my cat) I found myself awake at just the right time. And I’m reminded, as I watch the sun rise, of just how much I love sunrises. There’s something about the start of a new day that signifies a chance to begin again. It doesn’t matter how horrible or stagnant the day before was, here’s an opportunity to start again with a clean slate. It’s refreshing to wake up and know that you’ve made it through another day at your dead-end job, or through all three of your dead end jobs, or through having no job, or even through a day that was mediocre at best. With all the doom and gloom, there needs to be some optimism in the world and sunrise is just the time to remember that. 


**Disclaimer – I know this is an ooey, gooey, mushy post – and with observations that are hardly revolutionary – but I think we all need to be reminded at times that regardless of how crappy things seem to be going if we just get through to the next day, then we’re one step closer to things being alright.
