Quiet Times

Five minutes

Prompt: I feel happiest in my skin when…

I know what I want to write but don’t really know what words I want to use. I am very open in my 5-minute mind- wanderings but this is one of those oh sheesh things – it’s a bit personal like. Then again it isn’t.

To be honest, I never feel fully at ease in my skin, but I feel better now than I did three years ago. So, it is progress. Given that, I have techniques I use to ignore the faults that remain with my body. Knowing these faults are now only temporary and will be fixed is a massive help, even though the wait is a long one there is a faint glimmer at the end of the tunnel. I try to see each day as being a step closer to the end goal when I can feel whole and complete. I wake up long before anyone else to give myself quiet time when I don’t have to wear a mask. It is in these quiet times I am truly at one with myself, I am content with where I am at.
