This Moment

In this moment I am sat on my sofa, wrapped in a blanket and wearing the snuggliest turtleneck jumper. I'm surrounded by animals : Bailey, Luna, Mickey and Thor are all in the living room with me. They're all sleeping, separately - Mickey in her bed, Thor on the sofa, Bailey on the pouffe and Luna on the Virgin Media box. My stomach hurts, a result of my indulgent eating yesterday, but it's not a pressing pain. It's there, hovering, but it's alright. I can hear the tumble-dryer, full of clothes and bedding, working away in the kitchen. There's a vegan banana loaf baking in the oven, but I'm not sure how it's going to turn out because I forgot to grease the tin. There's a timer on my phone ticking down until I'm supposed to check on it.

I feel full of happiness, in this moment. Some of it is lingering, from when Luke told me he was proud of me at his house earlier, and when he said "I can't help it." when someone told him to stop staring at me in the post office. Right in this moment, I feel content. I don't feel anxious, although something is happening later that I fear will evoke that feeling in me. I'm trying not to think about it because it's several hours away. I'm trying to focus on the right now, which is why I thought I would share it with you.

  1. This is such a lovely idea! At this moment, I am currently snuggled up in bed listening to Spotify while my boyfriend is sleeping. I can hear is nephew and mum downstairs watching CBeebies. I am trying to decide what to have for breakfast, I'm thinking porridge is a good idea, and the sun is glistening in through the curtains :) xx

  2. This is such a great idea. I was often told by my social worker to focus on the now, and not the future and the what-if's. It's hard, but if you can do it I think it can really help and act as a calmer! x x

  3. I really feel like this could have been a passage taken from a book. Like Eleanor & Park or something, it was poetic almost in a way and very very calming to read.
