They look fresh.

You feel stale.

The bags, the rumples and the bad back feel like the outside manifestation of your inside nightmare. You feel stagnant, just this side of shriveled. The sameness of the days, the long nights, the stress of doing for yourself as quick as you can so you can be available for your caree's slowness have become a life that stands still as it tilts toward backward.

Your life is demanding those bags, rumples and back. But know when you can no longer give, you are given. Nature gives you fresh flowers. The rising sun gives you a fresh start. The twinkling stars give you a fresh perspective.

And, interestingly enough, you are just like the fresh flowers, the rising sun, the twinkling stars. You make our world beautiful and meaningful and purposeful.

During a time that can make your life feel stale, know the world will stay fresh just for you.
