the past few days i have merely existed. going through the motions. wake up. coffee. work. school. food. sleep. between four jobs, a full time grad course load, and seemingly never ending trauma work, existing is the goal. living has fallen to the wayside.
so, i am grateful that i have existed. but i intend to move forward and live. enjoy the weather and weekend with my clients. be present with them. give them a semblance of happiness, even when they’re away from home during a holiday. enjoy the time i get with my siblings, live in the smiles of my cousins as they search for easter eggs, and enjoy the company of my aunt, uncle, and grandparents.
i will live.
