Today I completed a challenging workout then had dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. As I was walking home, the sun was setting and nature was alive around me- I heard the comforting sounds of the summer cicadas and felt a slight breeze of cool, fresh fall air with just a hint of smoky scent. It was the kind of air that revitalizes you, lets you know fall is coming.

The leaves are starting to drift from their branches, and I’m just happy…happy because I’m at place where I can learn and grow, happy because I am at my most idealistic, positive, and excited, happy because I live with my friends and feel loved.

Today was a good day.
