for the first time in a very long while, i am starting to come to terms with just being.
i hope this time self love isn’t just making a pitstop. i long for it to take residency in my mind.
before, it’d pass through and suddenly the world and all its burdens weren’t so heavy. then i’d see the back of it and everything is a little bleaker. but right now, despite the midnight hour the sun is shining for me mentally. i look back at my past selves and realise that i’m outdoing myself. not quite leaps and strides just yet but i’m tiptoeing forward. and that is enough.
