It’s a good thing my heart is stubborn. It’s also a bit like snow. It can be tough; it can be soft; and it melts in inevitable warmth. It sparkles. It glows. Magic.
It’s a good thing I befriend people by force. Before they know it, I have come into their lives and left a hand print or two.
This little persistent heart did not make it out of 2016 unscathed. It got a little bruised and trampled. It got a little cold and melted. It hurt and healed. It exhausted itself and found rest.
I continue to learn. I continue to grow. If one thing is clear, it’s that this journey is about who I want to be as a person. This is about what I want to give as a person.
Despite all the insanity– I am still hoping; I am still loving; and I am going to keep pressing forward. I want to be the woman who never gave up; the woman who loved; the woman who believed. The woman who brought her own brand of magic with her, no matter where she went.
