Today's a beautiful day. 

Not cause it's sunny with a crisp breeze.

Not cause the farmer's market opened outdoors for the first time this year.

Not cause the convoy of long distance runners, each participating for their own reason: charity, self improvement, social, and so on.

Today's a beautiful day because I am happy. 


I was walking home with a linen shirt hung over my shoulder when I thought of the days I was depressed. I didn't know I was such back then. I can only know now, from a higher perspective, how low I'd been.

It didn't matter what happened back then. It was never a beautiful day. There was always something wrong, and people were stupid for enjoying anything. I knew better than them. 

Back then, everyday was a shitty day. Yet, I blamed the days. The days were shitty, it was not me. I wasn't the problem. It had to be everything else.

These days, everything is beautiful. Hardly anything has changed externally, but internally nothing is the same.


While walking home with that linen shirt over my shoulder, I thought about success. My head flipped through the different ideas of success that I've had. While walking home with that linen shirt over my shoulder, I felt, this was success.

    @abrahamKim - Can we have more on this? I am certain it's not fiction but I need a part two. Please and thank you.

      Yes. And quit trying to guess if it's fiction or non-fiction! Quit being like one of those detectives on crime shows! haha. If it is in the 'Westcity' collection then it's fiction. If not, then it's real lol.

    @abrahamKim "Hardly anything has changed externally, but internally nothing is the same." I am also feeling this. Thank you for these words.

      Thank you for the words thanking me for the words! And Thanks for saying hi and introducing yourself.

      I don't know if you listen to Drake or not, but I got those words from his album "Nothing was the same", particularly the mood in the song 'Furthest thing from perfect"
