Today, April 20,(4/20)I’m a year older and maybe, just maybe, a little wiser. At this age I’m only interested in consistency, stability, respect and loyalty. So don’t nobody tell me nothing.I’ve conquered my demons and i wear my scars like wings.
I know life is fluid, sometimes with cresting white-capped waves, other times with an eerie stillness, a quiet surface. But it’s never the same from day to day. As sure as one day is up the next maybe down. Letting myself ride the surface instead of kicking and fighting or sinking to the bottom like a stone is the only way I have had to survive intact. Let’s be brave and keep riding those waves.
Know that braveness isn’t always loud sometimes it’s silent. It’s in doing a thing that needs to be done, even though it’s hard and even though it hurts. Brave people aren’t immuned to fear just that their fear doesn’t stop them.
My promise to self is to love me more, find success, happiness and everything I long for in the simple knowledge that self-loving is critical to achieving all these and more while being brave in getting them.
So Happy Birthday, me. Yay!
Let’s go eat the cake 🎂 and guzzle a glass of red……
