I’ve written so many posts that will never see the light of day. I feel like sometimes I need to keep them just for me. I never used to see the point in writing something I wouldn’t publish. I now recognize that the true magic in writing is not whether or not someone reads it, but rather that I found the words I needed to express myself.
I don’t necessarily like the fact that there are so many unpublished drafts but not everything needs to be said outloud.
There are some things going on in my life that are really exciting and for the first time, I truly recognize that I deserve these things. Whether it’s a relationship, a job, or some other opportunity, I deserve all the positive things that come my way. Being able to even think those words in my head, let alone say them outloud, is something very new to me, but it’s probably long overdue.
I can’t take all the credit for this because I definitely have help. Sometimes, someone comes along and they help you to find yourself. They have a way of bringing you out of your shell and helping you to see yourself the way they see you. This isn’t something that just anyone can do either.
We all have been through shit in our lives that creates these little fractures. Maybe it’s baggage or perhaps a form of self-preservation, but regardless, it dims our light that is meant to shine. Someone with the ability to help restore that light, simply by being who they are, is one of the rarest things life has to offer, and if you’re lucky enough to stumble across such a person, never take them for granted.
I feel very lucky for a number of reasons. If life has taught me anything, and it has, it’s to never take anything you don’t want to lose for granted.
