Spent all day exploring. I live for days like this…
(Today as I passed an old man and his grandchild, we smiled at each other. Not one of those quick smiles just to make passing by less awkward, but a truly genuine smile. I couldn’t help but tear up, as humans we do such horrible things to each other, you often forget what beauty we are capable of. I think that may very well have been the first genuine smile I have experienced in a long time. Smiles shared with strangers are so pure, because you aren’t smiling out of obligation or to impress, maybe there isn’t even a reason you just do. And for a very brief moment in time you share some sort of connection.)
This is the first time in quite a long while that I can truly state, I am happy. Not because everything is ideal, that is bullshit, but because I am happy with who I am becoming. I am a strong, independent, intelligent woman who is dropping the societal insanity and following my passion.
Up all night drawing for class.
Croissants are baking and coffee brewing.
My cat sleeping beside me as my mind struggles to grasp the concept of time.
Maybe its just the sleep deprivation, but I feel quite content in this moment.
