Everything I am
Everything I am rightnow.
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 the plan.
l'll laugh through the confusion.
I'll smile through the tears.
I'll remember that everything happens for a reason.
Ill stand tall and proudly as the smart, funny, friendly, beautiful, sexy, amazing black queen that I am.
I'll remember that I'm only human.
I'll remember that is ok to have meltdown
I'll remember that it is not ok to unpack and live in a negative space forever.
I'll cry it out then refocus on who I am and where im headed.
I'll l remember that strength doesn't come from the things you think you can do.
I'll remember that 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 a beautiful rainbow!
