I am okay.
I say this a lot, I know that. I say this because I mean it. Because no other description could accurately depict how I’m feeling. I’m okay. Just okay. I’m not great. I’m not awful either. I’m chugging along in this thing called life.
I think too many people carry ‘I’m okay’ with a negative connotation. They treat it as avoidance. And really, that’s not the case.. Sometimes people say ‘I’m okay’ because that’s the best way of describing how they’re feeling or where they’re at with life.
I’m okay with how things are. I’m not happy about things, but I don’t hate it either. I count my blessings, appreciate my loved ones and am hopeful for the future. Still, though, I’m okay with the way the world turns. When you ask me how I’m doing, I genuinely mean it when I say I’m okay. I’m just… okay.
Today, I’m okay. Tomorrow might be better. Or, it might not. But I’m learning the importance in taking it one day at a time, and the importance of just being okay with where you’re at in life. You don’t have to lie. You don’t have to pretend you’re in a good place and you don’t have to hide if you’re in a bad place.
It’s okay to just be okay.
