– is the ability to do what you love and do it well, without your body not being able to keep up with your mind
– is the ability to focus and put your whole heart into something
– is the ability to feel again
– is the abilty to look at your body, squishy parts and all and think “hey I am a woman and this is beautiful”
– is the ability to respect and treat yourself well
– is not second guessing everything you do, and knowing that you don’t have to be perfect to be loved
I now realize I spent 5 years of my life in a caged box. There were times I thought it kept me safe, times I didn’t remember what the world outside was like. So I hid, i stayed inside, I fought those who tried to force me outs. I honestly had forgotten things could be any other way. But now as I step outside and breath the fresh air I thank God every day that I can live again. I am finally free!
