Because some days you wake up and you’re still tired.
Because it’s cold.
Because you have a pinched nerve that makes it hard for you to lie down, sit up, or stand.
Because you’re still recuperating from a weekend that challenged both your emotions and your liver.
Because two of the most important people of your daily life are no longer part of your daily life.
Because sometimes you still think about your ex.
Because some days, the only goal upon waking up, is finding one person to love. Because secretly all you actually want to do is curl into your room, pump your space heater on, and listen to antiquated British comedies while you close your eyes and pretend to sleep. Because some days this is you. And because some days this is not.
Today, I will work to find one person. Just one person to love. And then my work will be done.
