Hang Me Out To Dry

Updated on April 25, 2012

A Slow Start

When you wake up and all you want to do is sleep

You are hungry but you don't know what to eat

Many ideas cross your mind but they quickly come and go

Your spirits are low

Friends and family are not around so you feel down

Feeling sorry for yourself for no apparent reason

Burping and feeling like your stomach is not right

Take a deep breath

Lets try to start this day over again

Do some laundry

Get rid of the dirty and make it clean

Open all the windows in your house and let the fresh air roam

Time to check all your plants and see if they need some water

Then pour yourself a big glass

Go in the refridgerator and grab that apple with a bruise

Cut off the bad spot and eat it before it goes wrotten

Put on those old pants that are too tight

Feel what it is to feel not just right

Uncomfortable a little bit

Off your game a tad

Enjoy it just the same and don't get mad

Find a way to make this day dandy

Fine like the sweetest candy

If not still make do what you have

Life is never going to be perfect

We will find many days that we struggle

We can shoot to aim straight and hit the bullseye

If we miss our mark

Shoot again

When your cat paws at your new curtains and catches them with a claw

Then puts a pull in them that you will always see

Be o.k. with that

No need to worry

They are only curtains and are like you

They are now not perfect

Take great strides to be better

If along the way you get oatmeal that explodes all over the microwave

Because you put in too much in or the time wasn't right

Watch the day unfold just as it is

When you want to make love and there is no time

Waiting will not kill you

It definitely wasn't your plan

Understand first things first

When the car makes an unexpected noise and you fear the worst

Make an oppointment and get it checked out

Think of all the things you have done that made you happy

Take a moment and realize those times can come back again and again

You make them happen

Trust your instincts and feel proud of who you are

When this day is over you will not remember what bothered you so much

What you will remember how you handled this day with care

Got up and did something smart

Found a way to make it work

If you are like me

Take every challange slowly and don't forget to breathe

Repeat to yourself I know I can do this

I will find a way to make my day special

Where my day fascinates me to know end

Then I will have done what I have always wanted to do

Enjoy my day a little and sometimes alot

This is what I set out to do and I quickly forgot

      OK, Boston Red Sux fan, Mariano would never think that way. A-Rod? Probably, but not Rivera! Jeter is batting around 400. He will peter out before the season is over. I need a tissue!!!!!

      daisyflowrs You have to look at it from his point of view.What a nice job I have I get to rest all season and still get paid.That's the life.The rest of the team will pull together and show others they have the guts and talent to win without him.

      Mariano Rivera is out for the season....I'd jump out my window, but it won't open. For those who don't know me, I'm sarcastic. Yes, Mariano Rivera is a God in my religion. No, I am not going to jump out a window. Yes, my religion is NY Yankees. To hell with blood clots! To hell! I need a tissue.....

      Raciniwa Your timing is great.I have been doing a lot of cleaning and going through so many things I don't need. Many tough decisions to make.Sometimes I want to hold onto every memory I have ever had.Many come with stuff you accumulate over the years.Thanks again have a wonderful day.

      picklesandrufus I have the toughest time hitting the right keys spelling out your name.I spell things like piklesandrufs,picklesanddrufus,then finally I get it right.I see you laughing behind the sunglasses and I am laughing too.Some days things don't go right.I will just try to fix them and make them better.If not I close my eyes and hope I fell a sleep and woke up one day later.This day has to be better than yesterday I am sure.Thanx so much and keep the great spirit and attitude alive and well.

      A great attitude nicely portrayed in this hub. Some days requires a lot more energy to find the positive, but it is always worth the effort. Vote up!
