I feel my happiness coming back.
It’s been a slow process, but it’s returning, and I can feel the warmth spreading through my body.
I doubt myself less often. I feel encouraged, supported, and appreciated. I have rediscovered the love of family, the love of friends, and the love of myself I had so carelessly forgotten.
I’m not sure how or why I allowed myself to slip into such a dark place the previous year, but I can feel that chapter closing and the words of a new chapter taking shape. I feel strength returning to my convictions, faith returning to my heart, and happiness burrowing back into my bones.
Welcome back, old self. You were missed.
