There's an ancient proverb that goes something like this:
"A shower fixes everything."
Tonight, I had a shower.
It was one of those where you turn off the lights, set yourself down on the floor, let the water splash over you, cry, cry, cry some more, and feel the upset wash away.
But, do you know the best part about those showers?
When you've cried it all out and there's no more juice left in the machine, you pick yourself up, flip the lights on, dry off, and go to bed. A day begins again the next morning, sure. And it's probably going to be just as hard as the previous one, but you've got a new chance to try to find the good in it. Which is actually another proverb I'm a big fan of:
"There is good in every day."
These proverbs have come from my mother, who, despite our differences, told me tonight that she loved me forever, and I think that's something. Especially because I am stubborn when it comes to her, the way she's stubborn when it comes to me. We're alike. People tell us often. She's the good in my every day, and I hate it when I forget that.
Speaking of good,
You're the good in my every day, too. Thanks for keeping my spirits up. I wouldn't have gotten through this week without our group text vent sessions and your love for me. You people are my home. Is that weird to say? I don't care. Doing it.
P.S. you'd better believe this is happening right now.
