I am not sleeping in. I am getting up, and I'm not making the bed but I am opening the curtains. And the windows! I am making art. I am making breakfast. I'm having tea and two muffins in my nightgown. I am saying nice things to friends. I am dancing like a crazy person.
I am not looking at my resume. I am looking at LinkedIn, Idealist, Indeed, and SimplyHired to remind myself that I will find a job, and when that stops making me happy, I’m jumping on the bed.
I'm painting my nails. I'm doing a little bit of homework. I'm wearing a new sweater. I am wearing pigtails.
I am looking deep into my own eyes.
I am helping my brother. I am leaving the house.
Today, I am doing things for happiness. Tomorrow I’ll do things because I have to.
