This is more of a person journal entry than anything else. But it is one I want to remember. More, it is one I never want to forget.
I just got out of the bath and began to get ready to go over to my friend Tanya’s house. I began to wonder what I should wear, how much makeup to put on and how to do my hair. Then I thought the most astounding thought I’ve ever had. It was a completely new thought:
It doesn’t matter what I wear or how I look. As long as I look like me that is all that matters.
Never in my life have I thought that showing up as me and only me was completely enough- that I was all that was really wanted. I’m sure it has been the case- that other’s only wanted me- but to know it in my bone, that is something to be truly treasured.
And that is exactly what I will do- I will treasure my friend- and not just her but all of them- by offering more freely this treasure that is me.
