#obsessed: Be Okay – Oh Honey

For the first time in a long time, I realize that I'm pretty happy again.

After over a year of anxiety, depression, and many other things (one could even make an argument for PTSD after literally a lifetime of some of the things that happened), I think I'm in "remission." I feel at peace, happy, even hopeful. I've had periods like this before, but they've only lasted a week or two, so hopefully this one will last for a while. This one feels different though. Even after an incident I recover fairly quickly. I feel unrelentingly optimistic, and freedom is right on the horizon. It's a nice thought.

Quite a while ago, Isabelle showed me this song. It was nice and cheerful, but not very memorable. Then it hit the mainstream, even being featured in a Chili's commercial (Isabelle was not happy about that), and I looked it up again. It's more applicable to my life right now, and I love the lyrics and tune.
"I'm wide awake, so what's the point of dreaming when your life is great?
Celebrate the feeling, celebrate the feeling,
Can't complain about much these days, I believe we'll be okay."
In case this doesn't last a long time, hopefully I can remember to take the good days as they come, and leave the bad days as they go. ◊
