YES

today is a good day.

and there’s not really much more I can say than that—simply that I’m happy to just relax and smile for once. My life has never been easy. I’ve been through a lot of things that I don’t like to talk about because they make me feel angry and bitter. However, those things have all brought me to where I am now—which is kind of a beautiful thought, really.  Life is still difficult but that’s to be expected. I can handle a struggle as long as I have hope.

Maybe I am not good at expressing my feelings through words. That’s probably why I don’t write blogs very much…

…but sometimes I wake up in my own bed and listen to the sounds of birds singing outside and look up at the sunlight bouncing off the ceiling. At those moments I feel so extremely lucky just to be alive and free.
