“I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I’m in love and it’s a sunny day”
In true San Francisco style, the fog is lifting and the sun is shining through. Driving across the Bay Bridge this morning and seeing the thick wreaths of gray slowly burning off is a powerful image and it’s one I’ve captured the last two mornings in a row.
It’s an image that speaks powerfully to me and I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to experience it when I needed it. When my anxiety kicks into overdrive, it can feel like the mental fog has descended and I can’t see my way ahead. I try to move forward and find myself circling back to the same places again and again, feeling lost and like I can’t make any progress no matter what I do.
The past couple of days have been very healing and today my anxiety has finally released the reins back to me. We’ve been negotiating a transition for awhile now but things keep pushing me underwater and my anxiety keeps seizing control back, pretending that when it’s in charge I can breathe (ha!).
Today is a good day. The sun is shining, figuratively and literally. I’m in love. Huzzah for the Beatles and their song!
