After yesterday I was desperate to find a positive side today

Sure I still feel like death

and the day was long and draining

but I started finding the pluses early;

I ignored the alarm. I couldn’t drag myself out of bed

not like me at all, but I’m not exactly feeling like me either.

That left me leaving late

specifically, on the edge of sunrise.

The brain was foggy, but this was good news indeed.

The days are getting longer

While winter hasn’t done it’s dash yet

this is the first sign that it has an end.

That’s left me feeling considerably brighter indeed.
