Facing my fears

They say coming face to face with your fears is the best way to deal with them.

Last night, i faced my fears. I was calm, unmoved, fearless. I was a warrior with no more battle left in her but damn if i was going down. I listened. I laughed. I forgave myself. I am still here. Unbowed. 

I woke up this morning and the sun was shining brightly despite the chill. This is life. Two sides of a coin. Two stories to be told. Your version, my version. I have no control over your story but my story is all mine. I have no intention of letting anyone determine my story. 

Happy thanksgiving people. This is what i have to be thankful for.

1. God's love
2. Life
3. Family
4. Friends
5. Love
6. School
7. Stories
8. The future
