...and that would be me.
I owned that bright spotness, until someone decided they felt like unilaterally pulling the rug out from under me and in the words of Katy Perry, I hit the concrete...hard...and the brightness flickered. In my efforts to get up, smile and bravely ignore the blood running down my legs from my badly skinned knees, I tripped, and the brightness dimmed.
It's been awhile now, and I miss my brightness. It's taken all my energy to do what needed to be done, and although there's still more to do, I finally feel like it's time for my brightness to shine again.
I've been kinda feeling like a persona non grata for awhile now...before I hit the concrete, that was never an issue for me. I'm tired of feeling this way...on the fringe, half a step off, forgotten even. It's time to own my brightness again.
So to that end, my word for 2014 is REBIRTH.
I dislike the word "journey" as in, my journey of self discovery, my weight loss journey, my journey of healing. Personally, I feel like I've been on the Jornada del Muerto. But really (and I've had a lot of time to ponder this point), in the end, aren't all our journeys just living life?
Maybe it's wrong to admit this, but I don't have any real direction in mind as I start this blog...maybe it will be my own Jornada del Luz...a journey of light...as I just live my life, finding my brightness again.
So get out your shades.
