The Orange At lunchtime I bought a huge orange The size of it made us all laugh. I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave— They got quarters and I had a half. And that orange it made me so happy, As ordinary things often do Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park This is peace and contentment. It’s new.The rest of the day was quite easy. I did all my jobs on my list And enjoyed them and had some time over. I love you. I’m glad I exist. Wendy Cope. When life feels like walking uphill in a downpour, taking joy in the little things is so hard. I know it's rough, but I am so proud of you for making it this far. "I love you. I'm glad I exist," is what I'm working towards. What small thing are you working towards that will make you feel better?

      @spicysugar You might like two headed calf by Laura Gilpen. It has the nihilist look of Poe, but is so heartbreakingly hopeful.

      I love this type of poetry. I'm stuck in some POEtry right now if you know what I mean, so it's really relaxing to read stuff like this. Thank you 💕

      I think of this poem every time I'm having fun with friends.

      Beautiful poem! Thank you for sharing! I'm working on simply establishing a personal structured routine. Part of what worsens my depression is feeling like my entire life is in free fall and I have no control of even the smallest things. So I'm trying to ease myself into a routine, just some small things that I'm to consider daily checkpoints. Minor accomplishments meant to remind me that I am in control of my own destiny.

        @Toodaloo Routines are really big for me too. Even when it's hard to get out of bed it makes me feel better that I have a system to stick to.
