My Reflection

I’m not where I planned, but I’m where I belong.

It’s here in these quiet moments where I look around and find my heart swollen with love.

The memories can haunt.

The shouldas, wouldas and couldas can cause pain.

But, on the other side of the fears and across from the worries lies a spirit that is fiercely strong.

I’ve almost given up. Almost.

The grief of this little girl was finally allowed and acknowledged, paving the path of growth into the woman I am today.

And it’s from a place of grace that I can say I’m so happy and I made something of myself.

My life is my reflection and I am proud to say it’s beautiful.
