a cool springtime breeze lazily drifts in from my open bedroom window, as i sit down behind the soft glow of my computer, the sounds of sigur ros’ new album streaming via npr cascade through the dark room lit only by the aforementioned computer.
i’m trying to gain perspective, to slowly grasp things that i am just now beginning to realize.
for the first time in a long time, i’m slowly coming to the realization of things that make me feel the way that i do. there’s scared feelings, confused feelings, feelings of sadness and loneliness, yes, but there are also feelings of hope, feelings of peace, and of optimism as i make my way through another day.
i think i can, i think i can, i know i can.
there are steps i’ve thought about taking for a long time now that i’m just coming to convince myself that i might actually be able to take them. the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, after all.
