Today I know that as caring as I am, as much as I love to look out for others and hold their needs in high regard….that I come first. Not in a vindictive or bratty way, but with the sense that I no longer give all of me away to keep someone else comfortable. Today I know that no one is sacrificing when they love me….I am loveable and don’t need to apologize, edit or change who I am to be loveable. Today I know that strength comes in many forms - sometimes it’s knowing when to stand down with grace, other times...when to stand up with authority. There are days when strength is powering through with your head held high - and other days when strength looks like having a good cry or taking an afternoon nap. Today I know that pain doesn’t squelch love, but it does inform like and the decisions that coincide with it. Today I know that grief needs to be moved and felt and spoken of - that we all need witnesses for our life story - for its joys and for it’s pain.
