Most times I still feel like that little fat girl I was in school...scared and vulnerable. Try as I might to overcome these feelings...it is still hard. I was made fun of relentlessly in grade school due to my size. It was no fun, I assure you yet I learned so much from that time in my life.
The courage I have today is due to the struggles I was dealt as a child. Being made fun of, having an alcoholic Dad and parents who constantly fought isn't exactly the best was to grow up...yet I am grateful for family and the good times we did share.
Yes, it's my Birthday this Saturday and I am so grateful for the life I have lived and the one I am making for myself now.
I have grown wings and I am flying. I am creating my life based on what I love...teaching and creating and writing. Exciting things are ahead and I couldn't be more grateful for what's on the horizon!!!
