I have loved myself today, my body, my bravery, proud of how far I've come.
I can drive around the city without using the GPS. I can speak my opinion and share ideas. I can love my muscular legs even though they're hard to squeeze into tiny shorts.
I have grown so much, been courageous, loved, used my voice, stood on my own two feet, healed, and risen above insecurities because I am wonderfully made and worth it.
And I'm still learning, still growing, still walking the desert, but I'm not lost or confused like I thought I was. I'm here to walk the desert with others, be a leader. Yes, I'm quiet and shy, but I'm also a Leo and I'm here for something big. God has placed me here to bring beauty to the desert. If we must walk through it we might as well enjoy the journey.
