a good day...


Today. A good day. Might even be a great day, but she doesnt want to get ahead of herself, its only 11:00am. She hasnt had a day like today in far too long. She has needed a today more than she could have known. Whats so special about today you ask? Nothing, really. In fact, this day could have gone in a very different direction for her...

She woke up much earlier than she normally does. The buses were driving by outside her window as they normally do, but instead of hitting the snooze and pulling the covers over her ears, she sat up and started her day. She hopped in the shower and washed away yesterday. With her wet hair twirled up inside her towel, she brushed her teeth with enthusiasm, a nontypical morning happening for her. She was eager, and had not a clue as to why. She dressed, gathered her things, and left a note on the mirror for her roommate. As she headed down the hallway towards the elevator, she realized just how early she was. She even had time to go next door to her favorite coffee shop to do a little writing. As she walked toward her car to put one of her bags away, she realized, it was no where to be found. Her car had been towed. But instead of getting upset, she giggled and headed back up to her apartment to make some calls and find it. After just a couple of calls and a few minutes of sardonic smalltalk, she had located her car and found out how much it would cost to retrieve it. The price was not as terrible as it could have been, and she was thankful! Her roommate offered up her car in replacement and she gladly accepted. Her attitude as stayed just as pleasant about everything else she has encountered.

She has a good feeling that she can ride this wave of positivity late into the night. Although many of the things that went on today are not usually construed as positive especially when collected together into one morning, she still wishes everyday could be as great as today.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
