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.
