I Am You

Today was a huge day in my life. I have been going through something and only a few people know what it is. But today, I got some great news and a weight has been lifted off of me.

This latest journey in life has shown me that I am stronger than I ever thought I was.

So this is for all the women out there that are going through something in their lives. Remember, you are never alone. Someone has gone through or will go through what you have.

Now, that I have the whole new journey in front of me, my only question is What’s Next?

For the woman whose husband makes an “extra stop” after work every evening.

For the woman who is mourning the loss of a pregnancy that nobody else knew about.

For the woman who still leads from the front even although she’s lost inside.

For the woman who was fired for her fourth late because she has been awake for a straight week with a sick child.

For the single mom who doesn’t know how the utilities are going to stay on this month.

For the woman who has gone through 2 IVF’s and has tried for five years without success but still shows up to every baby shower for her friends.

For the woman who still hasn’t forgiven herself for the abortion that she had 20 years ago.

For the woman who has a line of judging eyes at her and her children as she counts out coins or has to put something back at the supermarket.

For the woman that opens the door to the news of her husband being killed overseas three weeks before he was to return home.

For the woman that lives with a quiet anxiety because nobody understands what you could possibly be stressed about.

For the woman that gives to her family all day- everyday and just.needs.a.break.

For the woman that smiles at strangers all day in public- but weeps silently every night.

For the woman who has wanted to end it all but found strength to carry on.

For the woman that heard the rumour about herself at church today.

For the woman sleeping next to a stranger every night.

For the woman whose genetics will never allow her to look like the ones in the magazines.

For the woman that endures one broken relationship after another because there was no father around to teach her what love looks like.

For the woman raising a fatherless daughter and praying that history doesn’t repeat itself.

For the woman who loves with all her heart who’s desperate to be loved.

For every single woman that cries in the shower so that nobody else can see. Because if you aren’t strong-nobody is.

Just because the water washes your tears doesn’t mean that you don’t cry. Just because you cry doesn’t mean that you’re not strong enough to handle it.

I am you. I see you. I am with you, I cry with you. I love you.

I Want To Go

This is just what I need.

Move Forward

Once again, I see/read something that is just what I’m thinking.

Fine

Once again, exactly what I needed to read. Tomorrow will be getting some news that one way another, will change my life.

At the end, I need to be FINE.

Forgive

I’m having a meh day today. So when I saw this, it brought back some bad memories and the people/person who I still can’t forgive yet.

One day I will.

The Five W’s of Lufe

As always, when I need to read something to help me, it pops up somewhere.

Need To Be Calm

I can easily go bat-shit crazy in less than 30 seconds, but right now, I need to be calm.
