A Tiny Piece of Happy

As I sat in my favourite on campus cafe, I had a moment; I felt relaxed, a little smiley, ultimately realized that I was okay. My mind is often a chaotic mess of worries and anxieties that shuffle in from strange places. This moment, when I simply ordered a coffee, a bagel, and a small salad with my favourite dill vinaigrette, I was happy. The days of having little more than 73 cents in my bank account were over, my expenses had been paid, and I had the opportunity to do something nice for myself. I bought myself my favourite meal, and sat alone to eat it. I savoured every bite, and every lingering flavour. I put my headphones on, and listened to The Lumineers. It’s a small step, but I really did enjoy every minute of this little happy moment. I’m going to be okay.
