my last night as a 36 year-old :
i took a walk in the dark with the dog.
crickets, cicadas sang their nightly song;
i stopped under a streetlight, staring at my shadow.
am i really that big, i asked myself? (metaphorically, mom, I’m not talking about being large & in charge, I do not have an eating disorder)
i can be, if i try. if i do. if i keep working hard, i answer.
I’ll Just Do It.
Hell, I Am Doing It.
Watch this SAHM transform (I clean up real good, see?) into someone on a stage in a room of 700-ish people. Speaking from a teleprompter (for the first of what will hopefully be many times to come), no less.
this is what i do. THIS is my 37th year, a year of ACTION, of success, of not giving up, of making dreams coming true. And balancing that with family, friends, life, and my sanity.
Will you join me? Will you help? Will you spread the word, watch, learn, educate, take someone’s hand, give out hugs, open the (literal & metaphorical) door for others, listen, STAND UP FOR YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN?
I believe in ME. I believe an individual can change herself AND the world. Not, not in a day. Not in a few months. It takes time. And I’m working on being more patient.
