In Response to the Question "Define Good?"

  • Friend:How are you?
  • Me:Good.
  • Friend:Define Good.
  • Me:Good is having a good time and liking my classes and trying out new experiences and being nice to people and people being nice to me and laughing a lot and actually feeling like my body is mine and that it's worth something and that it's not such a bad place to live. Good is having people tell me that I sound happy and believing them. Good is the giddy feeling in my stomach when I feel vulnerable in the safest possible way. It is talking to my mom on a nice afternoon wearing a dress that makes me feel better and shoes that don't make my feet hurt. It is finally, finally, having class outside. Good is hearing the roar of a softball game over the phone lines, half a country away. It is for once being excited that other people are going to be critical of my writing and eating whatever I want (within reason). It is having Haagen-Dasz waiting for me. It is having faith in something outside of myself. It is not quite forgetting about the bad things that I don't want to talk about, but being okay with not talking about them. It is running into people I miss in the most random places. It is never quite understanding what Black is, but being okay with that. It is offering forgiveness to the people who deserve it, it is calling out the people who don't and then forgiving them too. Good is being proud of where I'm coming from, where I am, and where I'm going all at the same time.

When was the last time anyone ever told you how important you are?
