You know that split second where you realize—finally—that everything is going to be okay?
Sometimes it starts gradually. It’s weeks, or even months, of steadily making peace with yourself, taking deeper breaths. And then you have that first warm day in March (which from the looks of it will be tomorrow). Or you walk into the house and the light looks different and you realize you feel better than you have in a long time. Or you hear a song that fills you up and you know that even if things are still a little upside down—everything is going to be alright.
