Episode 24: Your Wins are My Wins


Oh the happiness of celebrating the wins of the people you love so dearly.

Waking up on your own right before the alarm goes off.

When they wash your hair at the salon, massaging your skull, the water warm on your scalp.

Discovering you were wrong about someone and forgiving yourself for making a mistake like that.

Taking a deep breath and feeling the air fill your lungs completely before exhaling.

A coffee pot percolating, hissing and steaming from another room.

Meeting someone new and clicking with them immediately in a way that gives you hope.

When you get the feeling all over again that you’re doing what you should be doing, that you are where you should be.

Someone you love hitting a goal that they set for themselves, celebrating their wins as your wins.

When every song on the playlist makes you happier than the song before.

Learning something new about yourself.

Sleeping in your own bed after being away for a very long time.

The first drop of a roller coaster ride, your stomach all over the place, your heart wild with joy.

Making eye contact with someone who knows exactly what you’re thinking without saying a single word.

Falling asleep without any effort at all.

When your favorite band comes out with a new album.

When you finally remember the word you had on the tip of your tongue all day.
