I know its unlike me to be posting THIS much within a week LOL! But its easier for me if I share while its on my mind. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about life and the many things we take for granted. Just a few minutes ago I stood in the bathroom mirror at my job, adjusting my appearance, running my fingers through my hair, trying to obtain my vision of perfection. I made eye contact with my reflection and just as my mind started to drift into a cold, hopeless and distorted direction I heard a voice.

No, not THAT kind of voice LOL! It was my coworker, she offered a compliment, one in which I've heard many times before, but yet I still hesitantly accepted. Although it was something so genuine and innocent the concrete walls I've built around myself  wouldn't allow me to linger in that moment no longer than the time it took me to say "thank you".

I struck up a conversation about the rain and how it seemed as if It would be gloomy all day.

no one. nothing. no words. that can 

I smiled at my reflection.
