waking up on the first day of a long weekend.

actually liking the way your hair looks in the mirror.

your grandmother cooking a meal you love.

a game going on sale.

having a fully charged phone before leaving the house.

hearing your favorite song on the taxi radio.

seeing your favorite star on a billboard.

encountering a puppy along a sidewalk.

someone remembering a story you said a month ago.

a friend you haven’t heard from saying ‘hi, i miss you, strangely.’

friends you always hear from saying ‘it’s okay, we’re here, we’ll make time for you.’

them actually meaning it.

the soft embrace of a pillow at 10 pm.

for once not having anything to cry softly about.

waking up and feeling nothing but a wave of peace.
