A Morning Moment
I woke up feeling particularly happy today. In part because I could feel the warmth of missed sunshine upon my face along with the promise of a beautiful day. Happy text messages from back home were waiting on my phone. Another message from my BFF away on a trip but still making certain I had interesting things to fill my every spare moment. My flat filled with the smell of the beautiful bouquet of flowers that were laying on my desk when I arrived for work the day before.
And, it was also in part because of the evening before. A long, relaxed dinner eating exotic foods, the likes of which I dare not share here. Conversation that covered every subject imaginable; food, wine, our cultures, work, life, travel, family – even taxes. I have known my friend for a long time, but this was the first time we had ever talked in such detail. I still feel the glow of a good time spent.
The past few weeks have had me questioning a few of my life decisions. Pressures from a continent away. Days that challenged me to the point of numb exhaustion. I could not help but question essentially everything. The cloudy days only exasperating the doubt that lay heavy on my mind.
But today, it is different.
