Maybe it’s just one of those days?
I used a toilet today. It had modern plumbing. King Louis XIV’s didn’t, so I win.
I hugged someone who hugged me back. I think that’s pretty special.
I cried a lot. And there have been times in my life when crying itself was a luxury I didn’t have. There have also been times when I simply felt numb. At least I’m not there. At least I can still process things.
I woke up in a warm, dry bed when there are people out there who woke up in the cold, damp streets. I can’t take this for granted.
I once heard a saying that goes “A healthy person wants many things, while a sick person just wants one thing.” I have that one thing: health, or the safe assumption that I have time left on this earth. That’s pretty great.
I am reading this on my phone via the Internet. Try explaining that to my ancestors.
I got out of bed. Some days, this itself takes courage.
And finally, despite the “day to day trenches of adult existence” (as described by David Foster Wallace), I opened this app and I gave myself the permission to look on the bright side. That’s something.
I hope this helped spark some ideas. ❤️
Stay well, and stay you.
