A Fleeting Moment of Harmony

Each day I try to do something for my mind, my body, my soul. I do this so that I can (hopefully) fall asleep at night without uncontrolled thoughts. Post-traumatic stress disorder and the feeling of loneliness are linked, especially between childhood trauma and adult loneliness. To try and overcome this feeling, I stand before showering for a minute in front of the mirror looking at myself. Sometimes I take a photo. I do this to connect with my body and overcome the feeling of disconnect I have with the world around me. To try and calm my mind. To quiet my anxiety. To nurture my mind, my body, my soul. To exist for a fleeting moment in harmony.
