I have still been feeling happy for the most part, and I am taking full advantage of it to get back on track with my health and fitness. I scheduled my annual physical in August that will include blood work for cholesterol and stuff like that. I have been making an effort to eat right […]
The waves in my mind have been calm for the most part, gently rocking me as I relax on my back, enjoying the warm sun kissing my skin. I hear seagulls passing by and smell salt in the air.
I am all alone, but I am glad.
I try not to think about the storm that I know will eventually come my way, but today is not the day to worry about what is not now.

I am not afraid.
So, today, I will be. I will silence the voice in my head whispering, “The storms will be back, you know,” and enjoy the here and now as I float in my sea of happiness.
