There are few times in life I’ll say ‘happy’.

Normally it’s just being content.

But there’s innate joy inside of me tonight.

I feel I’ve accomplished something today, or at least multiple things.

And it shows what the diversity of day can look like if you just let it.

Routine bogs me down consistently — it’s like a silent killer.

Because it’s there to support, but anchors and constrains me.

To release, I need to exist outside the bounds of what I believe to be important and valuable.

Be open minded, but also to recognise that my value extends far beyond myself.
