Make Or Break

The moment your eyes catch sight of me, I have gained power. You have decided to entrust me and it is now up to me whether I’m going to make or to break your day.

Are you already feeling positive? Well, if so, I could well decide to increase that positivity, make you feel on top of the world. Invincible, no less! I have it in my power to make you feel so confident that you can cope with anything life can throw at you.

Or maybe I’ll give you exactly what you expect. Nothing too good, nothing too bad. We’ll just keep everything on an even keel. You’ll be balanced, ready to take on your normal ups and downs. Maybe you’ll be weighed down a bit but then something might come out of the blue to provide relief, take away some of the weight.

But remember, I also have the power to break your day. I can easily make you feel as though the only place for you is in your bed and under the covers, hiding from the world. I can take every shred of confidence and self-respect that you might feel and I can squeeze it, shred it, tear it in to tiny little pieces. I can make you feel that you are worth so much less than zero.

Are you ready to take your chances? To give me total power before you’ve even had breakfast? Yes?

Okay, then. Step forward and take a look!
