A Good Day
Let me tell you, I had a really fantastic day today. I think I might get the opportunity to do something really amazing and special that I never thought I’d get to do (I’m not speaking it into existence yet - for fear it won’t happen). And actually my great day came off of a great weekend. The kids and I had a fabulous time exploring the city, I spent way too much $$$ on art supplies and spent the weekend painting with the kids, I got to catch up with old friends, do some surprise bday party planning for a dear friend, and spent Monday marching for mlk, AND Kamala Harris announced her candidacy! Um hello. And then this evening after spending time with my mom make-up shopping and working out - for some reason, as we sat decompressing in the steam room, I kept wanting to go to sad place. It was really strange. And I couldn’t shake it.
And it want until just now, as I’m up late answering emails and trying to catch up on a few things that it hit me. I’ve just been waiting for something negative to happen. I had gotten so accustomed to negativity that several days of good vibes topped off with a really fantastic day just seemed.......odd. And I’m not saying that my weekend was perfect, there was some not so great sh*t thrown in their too - because, life - so so now I’m thinking ok, maybe I’m getting better at evolving, I just now need to improve my ability to accept happiness. And in that acceptance understand that there will always be highs and lows, and maybe accepting and holding on tighter to the feeling from those highs will give me the armor I need to battle through the lows. So, ok. Today I’m happy. Today was a good idea. And I feel okay saying that out loud and accepting it.
Here’s some highlights from my last few days:
