It’s 10pm, I’m aboard the subway and I’m heading home after a day filled with laughter, fun, and lots of good company. The tears are flowing down my face, but as they are, I’m smiling from ear to ear, completely unfazed by the people in this crowded train around me watching.

It didn’t hit me until I boarded this train, I sat down and immediately bursted into happy tears. I didn’t know why at first, but I realized that I felt happiness in a way I haven’t felt in a long time. Maybe it was the people I was hanging out with, or the exam I aced hours before that, or the look on my friends face today when we surprised her in her apartment for her birthday.

Or maybe it’s just me, nothing else. I think I’m crying happy tears because the person I am today took a lot of self love and hard work to get to this point.

I’ve come such a long way since my lowest point half a year ago, I look back at the person I was then versus now and I can’t help but smile at how much I’ve grown. I used to take life day by day and exist rather than live, now I wake up almost every morning feeling whole and ready to take on the world.

Life is so beautiful, I can finally see that clearly for the first time in forever. I’m so proud of myself for how far I’ve come even when the days felt impossible to get through. I’m proud that I stopped counting the days and started making them count instead.

I am in love with the smell of freshly made pizza. I am in love with the loud noises of New York City. I am in love with coffee shop study sessions with my friends. I am in love with nursing school and the chance to heal the sick. I am in love with the amazing people in my life who make me feel wanted.

I am happy, I am complete, I am full, and I am in love with my life again.
