Lesley Arfin is the author of Dear Diary (2007) and former editor-in-chief of MissBehave. Imagine her making demonically loud whale noises while pleasantly smiling at you in a slightly knowing manner and maintaining a calming, unwavering gaze.
This moment, too, is worth living. Please, allow yourself to accept the goodness of this moment— whether happiness comes to you in the form of a hot mug of coffee, wearing comfy clothes while reading your favorite book, or doing nothing at all. Accept that this moment is your moment to enjoy, just like any other.
