I’m proud of myself today.
My biggest battle has always been internal.
It has always been against myself, and my inner demons.
I’ve tried to control them so I don’t lash out and hurt others with my harsh words and biting sarcasm.
Because after it’s been said and done, remorse washes over me like a tidal wave.
So today, even if my buttons were pushed..
… I chose to ignore the itch.
… I chose to turn away.
… I chose to take a deep breath.
… I chose another battle.
And after the calm, I smiled.
Today, at least, I celebrate being calm.
Today, I celebrate the small wins.
