I refuse to take a seat and hide ....
I was the girl who watched the other girls be freely be themselves, dance and laugh, be spontaneous, flirt with the boys.
I was the girl who observed others shyly, was quiet, ashamed, built barricades around me.
I was the girl who was told she would never go to college, let alone graduate.
I was the girl who was told to shut up that no one cared what you thought.
I was the girl who was criticized and taunted for saying “No” and told “no wonder no one loves you”,
I was the girl who when sharing my dreams was criticized, “who do you think you are?”
I was the girl too scared to be vulnerable, too scared love, too scared to chase my dreams, too scared to fail.
I am the Woman who found her self.
I am the Woman who can be found dancing in her kitchen, the grocery store.
I am the Woman who reclaimed her voice and sings at the top of her lungs when driving unapologetically, FREE.
I am the WOMAN who can laugh wholeheartedly, openly, EVEN in public! Not caring about being judged - Self CONFIDENT.
I am a Woman who has not only survived but THRIVES, who knows her dreams, FEELS her dreams and is going after them - no longer satisfied with playing small.
I am a Woman who has made it her mission to lead through vulnerability.
I am a High Priestess who’s done her work in the shadow and the in light.
I am a Woman who uses her sorrows and wisdom as her super power to help empower others.
I am a Woman who still is in touch with her inner little girl, compassionate, empathetic and sympathetic to others.
I am a Woman, who because of those unfavourable circumstances has become strong enough to take another’s hand and walk with them on their journey, supporting them without judgement.
I am the woman I was truly meant to be, and no you can no longer pretend you own me. Because today I am unapologetically, unshakeably, and whole heartedly me.
