Today I'm at the top of the world again. This cycle seems to be getting more and more severe.. Where things just climb and climb and climb, and then plummet down again. It's been good and bad, but of course I would feel the good of it right now, while I'm on the up.
I have to say part of it was a poem recently brought to my attention, Phenomenal Woman
, by Maya Angelou (thanks again to the person who shared it with me <3).
For some reason today I can read the words of that and actually feel like the narrative voice could be mine. Most days I'm just not like that. But today... Well, there's a quality in my smile that hints at something beyond my skin that I just know is there and others can see and they can't guess what it might be, but it touches them...
It's a day where I'm not even physically feeling well, but still have enough of a positive attitude that I can see its effect on my coworkers in the way they respond to me, the smiles they reflect back at mine.
It's a report day, and I'm still in high spirits, and the rain is coming, but all I can think of is the beauty in it and this tender confidence in myself that I wish I could hold onto. I will hold onto it as long as I can, and see myself for being someone special to those I know and care for.. To my mirror full of sunshine and positivity, who I get to see today, and my friends who bear with my poetry and ramblings... And the people who read my random blog entries and serious entries alike and leave comments for me.
Today is a wonderful day.
Today I'm good enough just the way I am.
