It has been a crazy, exhausting couple weeks. I am looking forward to the weekend ahead. But I cannot yet embrace it. I must first thank everything that has worked to give me energy to look forward, regardless of the circumstance. So I give gratitude to memories that feel as though they are in existence, and moments that blanket me with comfort like a fond memory. I am grateful for spontaneous joy in the middle of chaos. I find solace in my understanding that elements in life are working in synergy. It’s not everyday that I will see a big-picture product of this notion, like when the sun meets the water. But on the days that I do, I am grateful. And on the days that I do not, I am grateful.
