I Am Not Awake Yet

Updated on January 8, 2015

My Alarm Goes Off Music Playing

Slowly my body stirs

My head buried deep in my pillow

A quick chill travels

Arms reaching to pull up the blankets under my chin

I see the icy snow through my window

The newsman reminds me it is 5 below

If going outside dress warm

Luckily I have to go nowhere

So I plan staying right here

Spending my day reading hubs

The sun shines across the pine trees

Tricking us to believe

It's nicer than you think

My mind searching for it's next thought

Even my lap top is lagging behind

Each word seems to be in limbo

Delayed and hesitant

How do we pull it all together

Overriding the little setbacks that hold us back

Seeing more good

Even though it is hidden at the moment

I am going to feed my body

In return pamper my mind

Giving more time to focus

Bringing back a history of great feelings and thoughts

Rebooting if you will

To trigger my imagination to kick in

Making today a little more lovely

When it is so easy

To just crawl back in bed and pull my covers over my head

      Gypsy Rose Lee It sounds like fun but I also force myself up and once I am up I am fine. I do love to take an extra cat nap when I can. It feels so good. Thank you for reading and sharing the little things that make life funny and exciting.

      There are days I feel to be more of a challenge and yes, many I want to just stay in bed. However I make sure I get up and start doing some work and most of the time afterwards I feel so much better. Now I don't think I could get myself to spend a complete day in bed.

      MsDora Some days a slow start and other days I drag my feet. Both lead the way to days that I bounce off the walls filled with incredible feelings of joy and happiness. Thank you for reading and sharing your nice words. May this year bring lots of energy and inspiration to everyone.

      Some days are good and some are challenging while a few days seem so difficult to take on. Great words from you.
