Today, I smile. I didn’t realize it at first. I was just sitting making my morning journey through social media when I felt myself smiling. Not an open mouth, teeth showing, picture taking smile, but rather a gentle, upside down frown, life is good smile.
That’s when I realized I am happy. I AM happy. I AM HAPPY!! For the first time, in what seems like forever, I am not stressed about anything. I have all these things I could be stressed about (believe me), but I am not. Right here in this space is peace and it feels A-mazing.
I know this feeling won’t last forever. There will be a day when the stress hits and I feel like the world is crashing down upon me… again. I will cry out for relief however I can get it. And maybe, just maybe, I will remember today. How I feel right now. And find strength in the knowledge that peace and joy will come again.
But for today, I am going to soak up every ounce of this feeling. I am going to fill my reservoir to overflowing. So I will have it to draw from for as long as possible. But:
Today, I smile
for the world to see
the joy that is
inside of me 🙂
