This moment

It's the end of a lovely 3-day weekend and while the thought of going back to work tomorrow is a bit depressing I can't complain.  You know why?  Because I'm sitting on the couch with Tony stretched out next to me, The Words playing on the tv, and both dogs are snoozing away on their respective beds.
At this moment, I have everything I need. 
This is my happy place.

It is ok.


A good friend of mine is having a rough day.  In fact, she's been having a rough several months and all of the emotion is finally coming to a head; she's done.  She's hit that wall and she's just plain done.  But, I think what's hurting her the most today is her negative attitude.  It's not like her: she's a positive person with a what doesn't kill you makes you stronger mantra, but she can't seem to get there today.  She's feeling beat down and can't seem to rise above it today. 

And you know what? 
It is ok. 
It is absolutely ok to feel your emotions with your whole being, even when it isn't pretty. 
It's ok to have an off day. 
In fact, I'd say it's healthy.  
It's healthy to work through your feelings, to not internalize everything because, in my opinion, that will break a person's spirit.  

Those bad days, the mornings when you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, the days when you're just not equipped to handle one more thing: it is ok.
