I got up today.
I made coffee today.
I fed my pets and gave my cat his tablet today.
I showered today, and washed my hair.
I replied to messages today.
I answered my phone today.
I breathed in, and breathed out today.
This doesn’t seem like much,
Until you consider that also:
I didn’t want to get up today.
I had no appetite today.
I couldn’t love today.
I felt disconnected from me today.
Everyone was a stranger today.
I did not want to breathe today.
I didn’t want to be in the world today.
I cried today.
I was so very tired today.
But I breathed, and cared, and groomed, and ate, and connected.
I did this under the weight of the world today.
I won at today.
I will try to do the same tomorrow.
Maybe I won’t win...
But maybe I will.
