Tranquility

Mia

Mia, 2/26/13

Today, I’m at peace. Not numb, actually content.

Sometimes, just a compliment from someone can help. A friend, a family member, a coworker. Just a compliment. Last night, I received a compliment. And just a simple one, but it mattered to me. And it made a difference.

Today, I’m not happy or sad, but… content. No ripples in my lake yet.

My cat also snuggled with me yesterday. Not my boy, Max, but Mia. She wanted to. Normally, she seeks out my husband. But she found me. It was strange… yet, calming.

Just small acts of kindness from my pets, and a friend – made all the difference in the world.

I have a bit of confidence today. Which is good, because I desperately needed a break. It’s nice to feel the clouds part, even if it’s just for a short while. It may rain tomorrow, but today, I have a blue sky.

  1. I love this! I love that you are reflecting on the positives and are very self aware. When I was in my depression I wrote journal entries almost identical to this!!! It only gets better- you’re on your way out of that hole, girl! Keep it up 🙂
