Happy Tuesday my lovelies! Today I found it appropriate to share a piece I wrote a couple of months ago. It's titled:
Walking down the street. The cold chill of Winter's exit whisking across my face. I stop and look through a window. I see her. I stare at her and watch her closely. How can one move through life so freely? So at ease. Does she not hurt? Is she not afraid?
I look at my past and everything I've been through. The dark days. The lonely nights.
The countless times I've screamed to the top of my lungs "I just want to be happy" in a crowded room but, oh yeah, that was just in my head and no one could hear me.
Jealous of everyone who looked like they never had problems. Envious. I wanted that. I want that.
I look again. She's dancing. Why? There's no music. She has so much joy. And I realize it's God's light shining through her for the world to see.
But as I take a step closer I realize this whole time I was staring at my reflection. She is me. I am her. The present. I've found happiness and she learned to live life out loud. #JustBecauseItsTuesday
Be Awesomely Amazing,
