There’s a stillness in the air tonight. And although something doesn’t quite feel right, I am thankful. I am thankful because I have food to eat, clothes to wear, people who love me, and a place to call home.
The thing is, life has had its ups and downs. But after going through turmoil over the years, one can’t help but develop this numbness towards the elements. While the 17-year-old me would often freak out the 23-year-old me knows that nothing good comes out from panic. Although that still doesn’t stop me from overreacting, I would say I am more controlled than I once used to be.
Tonight, I remind myself that others have it worse than me.
Tonight, I remind myself that despite the distance, He is in control.
Tonight, I remind myself to breathe easy.
Tonight, I remind myself to let go.
Tonight, I remind myself that this life ain’t over yet.
Tonight, I remind myself to just take baby steps.
