Journal – August 19, 2019

It’s been a strange sort of day. Been down then up. I am finishing the day on an up beat.

All told my ups and downs have been very mild. Like the gentle, rolling swells of the ocean on a bright, sunny day.

That is good. Very good. While I have not necessarily been stable I have been sane. I’ve been having good days. More than I can count.

I will grant you it is disturbing to still be rapid cycling but the cycles have been so mild that they practically don’t exist at all.

Ahhh… to live like this forever. That is my hope. ZTo be normal again. As I have been normal for more than the past week. My days of violent swings are past. I am sane. May I always remain sane. Life is a joy when I am normal. Normalcy is never overrated.

I feel good. Really good. Better than I have in months, or even years. And people see it in me which is even more amazing. I have had more than a few people tell me how good I look this past week or more. I don’t really see it but they are obviously seeing something.

Be good people. Stay strong. Always face the world with a smile. Never refuse a hug. Try for at least one good laugh per day. There is real magic in smiles and hugs and laughter. It can change your life. I know it’s changing mine. At last I can take my own advice.
