It's a Beautiful World

June 13, 2018

I look at old pictures of myself and I don't even recognize that person anymore.
Did I really used to be that happy? That hopeful? That SKINNY? Did I REALLY brush my hair every day?
That can't be me.
Life has knocked me down more often than I'd like to admit in the past few years.
Sometimes I LITERALLY cannot get out of bed in the morning.
But then I remember that I need to be able to afford food for my cat. The sun shines and the warmth on my skin makes me feel whole again. I look really cool in my prescription sunglasses. My friend Lauren and I have great conversations via Snapchat. My mom loves me. I met a puppy yesterday. Jamison and I have made new married friends who are weirdly perfect for us? I have a Sodalicious refill mug and I get to root for Uruguay in the world cup. I am re-learning my faith in God. I have access to filtered water and I look great in dresses.
Things seem to go right as often as they go wrong.
It's a beautiful world. So I'm giving it another chance.
And another. And another. And another.

Yours truly,
McKay
