A Day At The Lake

Updated: Jun 10, 2019

An honest, simple account of my day, Saturday, June 8th, 2019.


My heart is full today.


I am happy to be surrounded by my family.


I am happy to be breathing fresh air.


I’m happy to be eating good food, to be laughing, to be alive.


I am free.


I am grateful to live in America, I’m proud of who I’ve become, I’m content with my life.


YeAh???? WeLl ThAtS eAsY fOr YoU tO sAy. . .

YOU HAVE X Y Z, L M N O P


But you see, I had all of this 5 years ago too, but I was miserable.


I was suicidal, I hated myself, I had no healthy relationships.


I had all of this then, but my heart was far from full.


My circumstances didn’t change, I did.


I’m so thankful I went on that journey so I could learn how to enjoy my life.


I can now appreciate spending time with people I love.


I’m not stressed about work on Monday or about how I look.


I’m not scared to get on the paddleboard and risk falling in the ice cold water.


I am free.


I am living life.


I’m at peace with the present moment.


I can smile and know that everything is okay.


Any challenge that comes my way, I can handle it, because I have taken care of me first.


I’m not ashamed to smile and to bask in life’s greatness.


Today, I wholeheartedly choose to be me.
