I don't know about you but every morning when I wake up I have to re-calibrate my attitude after assessing my situation. Here are my realizations and responses:
Still blind -- Damn
Not totally blind -- Yay, I guess
Today's gonna be hard -- Ugh. But at least I'm not dead
This dialogue happens every day. My mind needs to do it because, in dreams, my vision is perfect. Asleep, my brain hasn't caught up to reality. Then I open my eyes and it spins up-to-speed.
