It's no secret that I don't write as much when things are good.
I write to deal with the unfortunate parts of life, but I'm a little less vocal when all is well. Writing it all out...it's a nice way to complain. Know what, though? Nobody likes somebody who complains all the time.
Right now, though, life is great.
Right now, I am OBSESSED with the game 'dots.'
Right now, work is just a little bit insane.
Right now, as I sit in bed after waking up from a Saturday afternoon nap, I'm feeling just...blessed.
Right now it's raining, and I kinda want to go for a run, but more than that, I want to be grateful that I can run. Because in an hour or on Monday or 10 years from now, I might not be able to run. But today... Today I can run.
Right now, I appreciate all the amazing people I've been blessed to spend the last few weeks with.
I appreciate you all for your love and encouragement, for celebrating with me, and for letting me cry on your shoulder.
These past few weeks have been a flurry of highs and lows. I dodged a bullet last week, and there will always be new things to contend with, but right now, very few of you know that in addition to the bad things going on, I have big, GIGANTIC news. GIGANTIC GOOD NEWS IS COMING.
That can wait, though.
Because right now, I hear the rain pounding on the highway outside, and I can't help but to linger in the moments.
The moment of proudly watching my friends switch their mortarboard tassels this morning.
The moment your breath catches in your throat at the subject line of an unexpected e-mail.
And a markedly similar moment of waking up to the sound of rain in the middle of the night and just being happy.
These are the moments. They're the ones that matter. They're right now.
