No journal yesterday….was just too busy, too tired and too preoccupied, and that’s ok. Yesterday was a good day despite the gloomy, cloudy weather.
Today was a great day! The sun was shining and there was no wind…..NO WIND!!
Last summer I had a great tan, the darkest tan I’ve had in years. It’s because I sat on my deck all summer doing nothing. That tan didn’t really mean much to me because I was sad last summer; sick, scared and sad. No one saw my tan because I saw no one. I stayed home, hidden, wishing time away, feeling I would never be well or happy again.
Today I sit on the same deck in the same sun, but feel so different. Today I am happy, content, full of peace and glad to be alive. So much has changed in a year. I believed, at the time, I would never be happy again. I don’t even think I wanted to be happy. I was so afraid to even wake up in the mornings….happiness seemed a distant thought.
Today, I am working at an amazing job that lets me work from home….from my deck….in the sun….getting a great tan. And this summer, everyone is going to see my tan. Because I’m happy and healthy again and want my friends to be around me as much as possible. ❤️
