Today Was A Good Day (Pandemic Poem on Mental Health)

I know that I’m not alone in the rough days. I know that even my rough days are someone else’s good days. As a whole society, our mental health has been tested in ways it hasn’t been before.

Today was a good freaking day!

Feels so good to write that. Good days have been hit or miss lately. Honestly, my family and I rarely go outside of our home these days…

And, if we do, we usually stay in our car.

But today, my husband, kiddos and I went to the beach and actually got out of our car… *Gasp!*

We felt the sand in our toes.

Our 2-year-old got to run wild and free.

Our 5-month-old got to squeeze the sand in her fists.

(She also got to put it in her mouth, nose and belly button.)

You see in past weeks, we’ve tried going to the beach, but there were oodles of people, many of whom weren’t wearing masks and my anxiety goes through the roof. Then, we turn our car around and go home.

This also happens when we try to go to the park, hiking trails… you get the picture.

Getting outdoors with the kiddos usually turns into a failed effort.

But today, I mustered enough optimism to get us awake, dressed, buckled in the car for a 45ish minute drive through hilly canyons. (A drive that usually makes me carsick.) All with the knowledge that we may have to turn around once we get there with nothing to show for it, except for cranky people.

Not. This. Time.

This Sunday, the trip was a WIN!

It’s amazing what a little time outdoors will do for a person!

Also, I realize how lucky we and our kids are. (We didn’t have any oceans that we could drive to where I grew up in Upstate NY. )

Anywho… with work from home stresses, two kiddos & no family support system nearby… Not to mention the ups & downs that come from postpartum life, I feel the need to cherish today!

Today was a good freaking day.

I know that I’m not alone in the rough days. I know that even my rough days are someone else’s good days. As a whole society, our mental health has been tested in ways it hasn’t been before.

Tough stuff — sad stuff — stressful stuff happens every day for everyone.

But, if you have a good day, even just a little win, take some time to recognize that blessing.

I’m so grateful to have felt truly grateful and happy today. And, I wish that for you as well.

OK, one more time (because if feels so good to write).

Today was a good FREAKING day!
