Writing 101, day one: Unlock your mind

I got ready to pick up my prescription from the pharmacy. I was out of the house in a jiffy, as I turned the corner of my house to get to the bus stop , I saw the bus whizzing by me. Thirty minutes , I had to wait for the next one, to get the time moving I went to the next stop . I noticed I had twenty two more minutes to kill, I came back to my stop, still there was more time left.

I was frustrated but chose to wait the ten minutes I was required to. The bus came I got on and after five minutes I was in front of the pharmacy. I walked in picked up my medicine. I turned around and started walking to the bus stop to get on the bus and get home. I checked my watch and realized I didn’t have to walk so fast to get to the stop for the bus. There was ten minutes left for the bus to arrive. The bus came late. Sometimes I feel the hands of the clock refuses to move when I want it to.

Finally I saw the bus coming, I was the first to get on. The anxiety of waiting took a toll on my mind I was exhausted when I got home.

The felines were sleeping sound, I tried to wake them up, they were not in a mood, “come on Gabriel, Raphael wake up and eat your lunch,” they didn’t care.

I turned on my computer to send an email, I got the most tiresome message,”sorry we cannot connect to the internet try again later.”

I went to the kitchen and made a sandwich for me. “This was my day, tell me if yours was better.”

DP Daily Prompt:Two Right Feet

What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?

Every morning I wake up well before sunrise to say my prayer, this is the first prayer of the day and we are expected to say it before sunrise, it takes me twenty -four minutes to say it. It leaves five minutes out of the thirty minutes. Usually if I remember I turn on the TV for sunset time, this is how I use my five minutes. Knowing the sunset time is necessary it helps me to say the evening prayer on time.

If I miss my morning prayer I do not feel so good, I try to make it up as soon as I can, but it’s always after sunrise,I only say the important prayer, it takes me no more than three to four minutes. I feel awful all day,because my routine is disturbed I can only blame myself for not waking up early.
