Today, I was unexpectedly laid-off at the web design company where I work, and when I got out to my car it had been towed because, according the tow company, I was “about two inches over the red fire lane.” So I waved down a cab. The driver asked me how my day was going and I told him. He said, “Oddly enough, I just finished dropping off one of my regular customers. She’s the owner of a start-up web design company and she just finished telling me she was looking for more help.” He gave me her business card and I called her as soon as I got home. We had a great conversation and I have a face-to-face interview tomorrow at 8AM. MMT

Today, the homeless man that I always give leftover food to as I’m closing up my food cart for the night gave me a birthday card. I only told him my birthday once – last year on my birthday when I had a birthday balloon tied to the cart that one of my regular patrons had given me. MMT

Today, me and my ex best friend who I haven’t spoken in almost a year coincidentally witnessed the same horrific car accident while we were walking on opposite sides of an intersection. Both of us stayed until the police and paramedics arrived to give our statements. Afterwards, still in shock from what we had just witnessed, we got a coffee together, reconciled our differences, and ended the evening with a long hug. MMT

Today, I am celebrating 5 years of marriage to an amazing man. Our mutual friend kept trying to set us up over the years, telling us we'd be good for each other, but somehow time never allowed it. At her wake after her untimely death at 19, we finally met and decided to go on a date. It was perfect. Her insight into our hearts, and the lifelong gift of love she has given us, MMT.

Today, I got lost in Manhattan. As I stood on the sidewalk trying to get someone’s attention for a little assistance, 25+ well dressed business folks blazed by me, purposely avoiding eye contact. Finally a teenager with spiked green hair and a pierced lip stopped, smiled and gave me perfect directions. MMT

Today, I got a friend request on Facebook from a girl I didn't know. About to ignore it, I noticed the message: - Is this Lily? - or Lilystar? Lilystar was my handle on a forum I belonged to in the 8th grade. The girl and the others on that site were the only ones that kept me alive when I was at my lowest of lows while fighting depression. I had since lost touch with them long ago. Reconnecting with her years later, and making plans to meet in person MMT.

Today, as I pulled into my apartment complex I noticed my neighbor, who’s got to be about 8 months pregnant, struggling with her groceries. I stopped and helped her bring them up the stairs into her apartment.

Enjoy!” MMT

Today was the first day I went to work without a bandage covering my wrist to hide the scars. The first thing my co-worker did was pull me into a hug and say "I'm proud of you." He is the only person who has bothered to realize I cut myself almost every day and the only one that cares when I don't. MMT

Today I realized that I didn't fall in love with you, I fell in love with who I thought you were… who you led me to believe you were. And now I realize that the saddest part of it all isn't that you led me on, cheated, and lied to me time and time again, the saddest part is that the girl I loved never actually existed. MMT
