TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY

I don't really like my birthday.
  1. I'm 26.
  2. I'm grateful that I'm healthy.
  3. I'm grateful for my friends who swooped in to scoop me up off the floor after I told them I needed them.
  4. I'm laying in bed and my best friend is making me breakfast.
  5. Because she's a gem of a woman.
  6. I am grateful that I have resources to reach out to when I need help.
  7. I know I can't go through shit all alone.
  8. That's what got me here in the first place.
  9. I'm grateful for the sky and the birds and coffee and warm hands.
  10. I'm grateful that my mom calls me on my birthday and sings happy birthday to me.
  11. I know that my heart is kind and my mind is clear, and that I will get to see Paris someday.
  12. I know that in the end the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself.
