Today was a good day! It seems simple, but lately, I haven't been saying that much. Not because some huge tragic moment is happening in my life, but I'm not going to lie there just haven't been a lot of 100% good days. Good moments sure, good days - eh.
Today was different though. Maybe it's because I consciously spent the day with myself or maybe it's because the weather is getting nicer. Maybe it's because I discovered how much easier audio messages are than voice texting or maybe it's because I got a facial. Whatever the case is, today was a good day.
I'm writing this while enjoying a cool, yet sunny spring day on my patio with my dog. I've spent the day taking care of myself and working toward more of my professional goals. I'm also writing this because I felt like I needed to take a minute to ground myself and appreciate the place I am at in my life. And here's the thing - I don't think I'm the only one who needs to do this more often.
So many of us, especially those of us in this post-grad, 20-something-year-old season of life ate constantly feeling less than, or burnt out. We feel like no matter how much progress we think we're making, it's never good enough. No matter how many good things happen to us or for us throughout the day there's always one more bad thing that makes our good days go to simply okay days.
You don't need to spend the day getting a facial or getting your nails done to have a good day (although trust me those are always great places to start). Sometimes you just need to sit with your thoughts and remember everything that makes you wonderful and everything you appreciate in your life.
Good days are out there, we just have to be willing to accept them.
