Recovering my happiness


Fake smiles

Fake laugh

Fake happy




Nephews hugging me

Parents hugging me

Sisters hugging me

Friends hugging me

Love envelopes me, and reminds me of

The little things

A bee finding a flower

A kitten finding a home

A childs' laughter

Parents having a child

Holding hands

Warm blankets

Dancing in the rain

Soft cookies 

True love 

Meadows in the spring

Early morning dew

Waking up to start a new day, because even the darkness cannot stay.

Positivity is key to recovery,

and I'm on my way to find it in everything.
