Today Was a Good Day

This bench means a lot to me. It’s a place where I go to think, reflect and try to get a clear head. Today was only 25 degrees out. I went and got a Starbucks Cafe Mocha and sat by myself. There weren’t many people jogging or walking their dogs as usual. There was a silence that I never heard before on this bench. From afar, I could see the kids ice skating on the pond from the other side. I remember my mom taking me to ice skating on this pond when I was that age. I remember sitting on this bench having deep conversations with my true love and watching the ducks pass by, floating so carefree in the water. No matter what season it is, this bench is mine. It always comforts me when I’m feeling down. I didn’t feel the chill of the 25 degree weather, instead, I felt the warmth of the sun glowing on my face and the heat of the coffee warming up my hands.

Today was a good day.

Thank you all for the advice you have given me on my previous post. I really appreciate it and I have been feeling a lot better. Today really helped, so I took a picture of my favorite place.
