There are days when cleaning your teeth seems to cost you too much energy to even begin. All you can see is darkness. Your own darkness. The world and everything happening in it look dark, hopeless, pointless, if seen through windowpane covered with your darkness.
And then there are days when you get up effortlessly at 5.30,
even take a 10 minute bath before seeing the volunteering half of your family off,
and have enough energy to pick up the scattered innards of the rubbish bag that the fox had torn in the night, yet again,
before even thinking of breakfast.
The worst thing to do on such a happy day is to think of the certainty it'll pass.
For it *is* a fact - trying to pretend bad days are gone for ever is no good.
Nowadays I tend to think of the good days as cake. Your favourite, with custard and fruit and ample portion of whipped cream.
Only a fool would spoil the moment by already thinking of rubbery train station sandwiches while eating cake.
What you do it with a cake is eat it. A spoonful. And another. And one of the strawberries is a bit sour and makes your face pucker,
but another one is sweet again.
Once you got a delicious piece of cake,
not to enjoy it would be a grave mistake.
Hope a lot of you are having a cake day today!
