New Day (Stories on a Theme – “Hope”)

Sun bursts through the curtains.

You wake up, eyes still full of sleep and head still full of dreams. You slowly recognise it is morning as you roll over in the covers to turn off your alarm.

Another morning. Another day full of possibility.

You look up at the ceiling, feeling the weight of your bones pull you down into the mattress and your mind floods with thoughts of the day ahead.

A whole new day. A new opportunity to try.

So you roll yourself out of bed, place your feet on the ground, and greet the day.
