this morning while washing my face
i had this thought

it’s been a long week
a long month
a long year, truly.

i can see this year
written on my face
residing in my eyes

some sadness
some joy
some hopefulness
some peace
some worry

a few wrinkles
a few smile lines

as i washed away the night of sleep
i thought
even though i was not sure i meant it
or really believed it
still, i knew it was true
so i dedicated myself to that thought

and repeated it over and over

because that is what life truly is for me
no matter what the circumstances of today
this moment
this day
this week
this year

it is, in the end
all beautiful.
