Today I can see the sun rising. I can touch my split ended hair as I straighten it for the day. I can feel the warmth of a pre-storm on my face as I go up to campus. I can walk. I can breath. I can hear the birds singing trying to tell spring it's time to come. I can feel the fuzz in my warm pockets.I can taste my breakfast.
Today, let's stop thinking about what we can't do and think about all the wonderful simple, and not so simple, things we can do. Give yourself credit for waking up today to face yet another day. Today, let's love ourselves for the things that we can do. Because if you think about it, it is a miracle we can do each of those things.
P.S. Happy birthday to my incredible roommate Emily!
