I couldn't remember why I woke up early on this particular morning. But I remember my anticipation to take Fritz on his morning walk. We weathered a couple of storms these past few weeks and the drab, cheerless rainy mornings start to wear me down. When I took a peek from behind the curtain, dark clouds concealed the sunrise and I almost went back to sleep.
A few seconds later, the sun broke out from the gloomy clouds and burst into view. This is the sunrise from my bedroom window as it radiates happiness.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
