Some Days and Other Days

There are some days I know I can do this.  I get up before the alarm, get shit done, and feel good about who I am.
Then there are other days.
There are some days when I am strong, can run fast and nothing hurts me.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I feel normal. Not happy nor sad.  Just myself.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I am happy.  I breathe deeply and embrace life.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I take care of myself, eat right, and don't abuse my body.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I am a kind and loving father; I am a friend, a teacher, and coach.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I look in the mirror, see my reflection, and know I am up to the challenge.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I don't think about what I've lost and look towards the future with no hesitations.
Then there are other days.
There are some days I float in peace, trusting the river knows the way forward.
There there are other days.
There are some days I don't question the order of the universe, or curse God, and it all almost makes sense.
Then there are other days.

There are some days I know there are some days and other days.
Then there are other days.

There are some days and there are other days.

  1. This is what I needed today. I lost my husband in April and I also have two boys (4 and 9). I guess I'm not the only one feeling this way...
