Everything I am

Everything I am right now.
Everything I'll ever be, is all I'll need to deal with whatever or whoever the world throws at me.
Someday everything will make perfect sense.
For now I don't get to know my future.
I'll laugh through the confusion.
I'll smile through the tears.
I'll remember that i am everything happens for a reason.
I'll remember that my birth wasn't a mistake.
I'll stand tall as the smart, funny friendly, beautiful ,sexy ,amazing black queen that I am.
I'll remember that I am only human
I'll that it is okay to have a meltdown.
I'll remember that it is not okay to unpack and live in a negative space forever.
I'll Cry it out ,then refocus on who I am and where I am headed.
I'll remember that strength doesn't come from the things you think you can do.
I'll Strength comes from the things you thought you couldn't.
I won't let my past or anyone else define me as the woman I am today.
I define the woman I am present and future.
I'll remember that after the rainstorm that is life comes beautifully colored rainbows.
