From Here.

Some days I need to remind myself
the ways in which framing impacts
my emotions
which impact
my behavior

That even when the glucose meter claims
three forty eight
it means that I know where I am, give or take
and that's more than I knew
just a few seconds ago

That forgetting to take my vitamins each night
for two weeks straight
also means that I had vitamins to take
that I could afford them
and tomorrow is another chance

That being angry or frustrated or envious
is okay
and maybe actually healthy
as long as I don't unpack and live there

That sometimes I should ask myself what
breathing feels like
not to answer it, but just to notice
because wherever I go from here
here is what I have
and so I will be thankful for it.
