As the bride walked down the aisle, I couldn’t help but notice the groom’s cool smile. He didn’t just look happy. He looked at peace.
So, while I experience fear and disgust, I look to my beautiful dog, appearing the happiest she has been in a while, and it makes all my discomfort worth it. Besides, my darting eyes have never failed me. We’ve done this trail countless times.
Stories of sitting on the airway in an airplane, unmoving, have always been my worst nightmare. Now I was living in it, getting bumped by a family passing a baby around, closing my eyes, and praying to God.
Sometimes you need one of those moments cleaning toilets in a restroom to realize your inner potential. Always be more than what society says you can be.
It's difficult to put into words how valuable that was for me, without me even realizing it, until it was over.
I’m not out here trying to impress anyone. Just me being me.
