Even when things are whirling and swirling, I know it’s all going to be ok. Better than ok. Everything’s going to be great.
Yesterday’s #reverb10 prompt posed this question: Everything’s OK: What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?
For me, it’s the continuity of the little things. Knowing that how crazy and chaotic things seem, my newspapers will be waiting at the end of the driveway when the some comes up tomorrow. There will be coffee in the house. (I make sure of that.) The cat will greet me when I get home, following me around like a puppy, happy to see me.
There will be annoying people on the train, but they’ll give me good stories to tell.
My work laptop will blue screen.
People will tweet.
I’ll consider going out for a run.
I’ll eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and a couple snacks in between.
All these things that happen daily help reassure me that everything’s fine. Because as long as the earth keeps turning, so will I.
