I had a dream I couldn’t connect to the people around me. They constantly told me which direction to go and what to do to be included. Yet, despite my attempts I was unable to relate.
In my dream, I decided I needed to be me. I cut my hair the way I wanted. I walked the direction I was drawn towards. I was alone-always alone, but I felt right in my skin without outside influence.
When I awoke from the dream, I smiled with my new found realization. I have days I am not as comfortable in my skin and I understand those are the days when I allow the outside influences to penetrate and alter my perception.
I am okay with who I am. I am human; therefore I am full of emotions and intellect.
I can come in like a raging storm or slide in without a sound.
I can be as bold as a warrior or as fearful as a mouse. I can climb mountains without losing momentum and other days I can barely get out of bed.
I can be loved and adored or people can be repulsed by my presence.
I am okay with who I am. I can be as strong as an oak tree or as fragile as an egg shell. I can be on top of my shit or be swimming in it. I can be a shoulder to lean on or a person to run from.
I am okay with who I am. I can look in the mirror despite what the world has told me about who I am supposed to be and still see a strong, beautiful woman.
Never let the fear control you even when the world is falling down around you.
Be loyal to who you are,
Fight when it’s time to fight, but never forget to
Love always-every moment of every day!
