It’s my word of the day. Do you want to know why? Well, I’m going to tell you anyway. Today was my birthday. Although I didn’t party, go crazy or spoil myself, I can honestly say I spent it with great people. I have never spent my birthday alone which makes me more fortunate than many people. But on this day I have a new found appreciation. Why is that? The answer is simple, I know me much better now than I ever did before. I appreciate every struggle I’ve been through and continue to go through to be in this place.
A place surrounded by people who see me as I am and they not only like me for it but love me as well. I know my journey still has many places to take me but the darkest journey has brought me to something beautiful and amazing. It’s brought me to truly beautiful people. People whom embrace my darkness and strangeness. The things that make me different are the things I love the most.
I’m not used to having the right people love me. Or should I say accepting their love. It is still hard for me to let them in but, I’m grateful for them, my journey, and for me.
You are all beautiful and have something special to offer. There is always something to be grateful for.
