tuesday || mindset

day 192 

triggers feel like caustic splinters that lodge deep within my existence
they take up residence where they languish and fester and waste my time
i decide to approach the day a bit different and this is what i notice

the two butterflies who dance through the flowers as i drink my morning coffee
the way the dog tilts his head to the left when he is asking something of me
the smell tomatoes plants emit when you brush against them in the garden
how sweet the first potatoes of the season taste, dug, rubbed clean and gently cooked
how the hummingbirds have taken to the nasturtiums on the deck
the smell of fresh picked savory, as i add it to the potatoes
