“Enjoy the concert. Here’s hoping this guy makes you smile.” he said as I was preparing to leave.
A text message from another world came in… what he didn’t know, was that I was already glowing.
“I don’t need a dude to have a good time.” I told him.
And I didn’t.
And I don’t.
I realized that anything above and beyond that, regardless if worked out or not, was just a bonus.
It has taken me a long time to get here, but I’ve finally arrived.
This is who I am.
This is who I want to be.
It’s nice to meet
My eyes are open.
My heart is as well.
Love is a battlefield. You don’t have to retreat but you have to keep your shield up, even if it is a weapon as the Spartans say.
I am prepared to be the person I have always wanted to be…
I am prepared to learn the lessons and experience the pain and the levity without prejudice.
Because that is how you get stronger.
Because that is how you progress.
With a concrete squishy heart…
With eyes wide open…
I know that anything is possible.
