you know those days when the day is actually running you?
when it feels like you’ve been ‘go go go!’ from the very second you opened your eyes??
but then – eventually – you get to that point where things are winding down, getting quiet, & you finally have that moment for yourself… the one that makes you think ‘this is what i’ve been waiting for all day’…
you sit in that special spot or sit down with that special person & it’s the best part of your whole day.
well this, is that moment for me.
the time when i sit down with a giant cup of coffee, a notebook & my dog & i just write.
and i’m realizing now, that no matter where i am or where i go, or what happens, i’ll be okay as long as i can keep getting back to these moments.
whether that’s here at my dad’s perched on a pile of lumber in the middle of his home renovations.
or when i stayed at my mom’s & wrote on the fire escape.
or at my grandparent’s farm, on a blanket out in the yard.
or my favourite spot of all – at the cabin in my old adirondack chair, by the fire.
i’ve been able to heal & grow because i’ve been able to keep doing the one thing i love the most.
the one that makes my heart the happiest.
and as long as i can find a place to sit down (preferably outdoors) with a cup of any kind of coffee, my books, my pens & my dog – i am good to go.
i’d love to know in the comments below what the best part of the day is for you… or if you have a ritual or habit that keeps you grounded…
