There are just some days where you wake up and you just know – it’s your day. Things are going to go your way. It’s that time again for kicking ass and taking names.
I woke up today, and shockingly, I woke up on time, three times in a row to be exact. I woke up in time to tell my husband goodbye as he left for work. Then I woke up just before 6 a.m. to take my son to the school to catch the bus for his wrestling tournament out of town. Then I woke up an hour later to get up and get ready myself to head out of town to this tournament.
I knew it was going to be a great day when I hit the snooze button three times and still managed to get up, take a shower, get ready and get out the door and made it there exactly on time, to a tournament that was an hour’s drive away. I had the right seat, I had the right clothes and I had the right kid. My kid was out there wrestling at a higher weight class than usual – which means he was wrestling kids bigger than him – and he pinned two of them in under a minute. He had the right moves at exactly the right time.
When I finally arrived home this afternoon I had thought I wouldn’t be able to write on my NaNo story but as it turned out, it was my day. It’s my thing. I did get to write and I managed to get in a few more thousand words today in addition to the 12,000 words I had written in the previous two days.
I couldn’t help but be reminded of a song I heard yesterday afternoon and thought I might share it with you. Remember, it’s your thing. Do what you want to do.
