I can’t go back and warn that younger version of me. I just acknowledge and love her and accept the past.
If it weren’t for her and all she’s seen and done , I would not get the opportunity to meet me, as I am right now.
The hurt will heal and some will not. I will breathe and live and survive. I can allow God to swallow up anything I cannot handle before me and guide me right. I feel safe, more content than I could ever imagine. It’s not necessarily the situation. it’s the vessel and my spirit.
I have a smile in my pocket. Today I can choose to wear it or save it for later. I am gonna wear it!
