I just looked at this picture of myself and started to cry 😭

Sometimes I'm really hard on myself...

Sometimes I focus on my disappointments...

Sometimes I get impatient...

Sometimes I doubt my dreams...

Sometimes I wonder if I've grossly overestimated my ability to make a difference...

But when I glanced at this picture tonight on my Facebook wall I saw who I am becoming...and unbecoming...

I see someone who is winning against the lies she's believed about herself...

I see someone who is learning to trust herself...

I see someone who is becoming more courageous...

I see someone who is getting clear on her message...

I see someone who is standing up when she was told to sit down, speaking up when she was told to be quiet, thinking for herself when she'd been told that was wrong...

I see someone who isn't broken...

Someone who doesn't battle depression anymore...

Someone equipped and equipping to change people's lives...

Someone who doesn't struggle every day to not lose it with her kids...

Someone who lives with hope and purpose...

Someone rising up. Rising up from figuratively huddling in the corner, crouched down, with her arms protecting her head. Rising up, showing up, realizing it's safe to be seen now.

Someone done cowering. Someone not letting "them" win anymore.

As I was picking out glasses last week I had this criteria going through my mind (besides black, small, and preferably matte) - I didn't want to hide behind them. No more hiding.

Today one of y'all commented that you loved how these glasses don't bisect my eyes - I didn't even realize my old glasses did till that comment, my quick Google search of what bisect even meant, and a scroll through MY Facebook pictures.

Sometimes this healing journey feels slow. I wish it would go faster, poof & be all better.

But looking back my heart swells with gratitude...that things don't have to stay the same, that pain heals, and that everything is on time. 💕
