Simple words for simple feelings

by Natalie Robin

I went to sleep smiling. I woke up smiling. I walked to work smiling. It made other people smile back at me. It is incredible how fast the heart heals; how fast the mind reroutes the waves inside its soft channels back to happiness. It is hard to go through terrible things, and just as hard to be frozen in the aftermath. I am thankful to have gone through enough  in my life that now, in any struggle, my natural response is resiliency. I hope everyone remembers the buoyancy of their spirit when they are sad. The world is big, life is long and I feel like I am glowing.
