wake up and smell the coffee


clean slate .2, originally uploaded by rebekkah.

A clean slate, that's exactly what I need. Get out of bed and grasp the world as it quickly changes around me, to breathe in the crisp cold morning air, to brew my own coffee and head out the door. Start re-living, but anew.

The past 3-4 months have been somewhat challenging for me...I felt my life peaking with the excitement of a baby joining us, only to find out it wasn't going to happen... Little did I know it was a blessing in disguise, for it revealed further complications that have now been resolved through surgery. I am very happy... As much as I still mourn my loss, I will always be grateful for reasons I can't even bring to words...

It is now time for me to get out of bed, realize my fortune and get back on my path... Today, I feel exhausted, drained out, but I also sense the sparkles of energy within, and I can smile. Today, I know things happen for a reason, and a good one for that - if not great. I feel older, but quite wiser I would say, and looking forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2007...
