day 24 of #100happydays - after an extremely disturbing experience this morning, i was looking, almost begging for some sort of positivity. that’s when i saw this bouquet of yellow padre chrysanthemums next to my seat in this café. i’m reminded of the grandmother that i never met, on the anniversary of her death, and how my parents always tell me that i love flowers and floral print the same way she did.

day 23 of #100happydays - after a night of disturbing nightmares, i woke up really late for work. in order to get there on time, i ordered an über. my driver’s name was tahalil. he asked me what i did for work and when i told him he began a passionate conversation about education in america, self-motivation in the black community, and leadership and community issues in african countries. he said many things that i thought were small minded, stereotypical, and judgmental, so i told him that and explained why. i said things that he felt were idealistic, naïve, and overly compassionate, so he told me that and explained why. when i arrived at work and was getting out of the car, he looked back at me and said, “you told me things i didn’t know. i learned a few things this morning. i wish more young people were not only worried about these issues like you are, but also were speaking about them so sincerely and honestly as you are. god bless you.” i told him that i too learned a few things and that i wished i could start every morning with a conversation like that, a conversation that reminds me of the world around me.
