I might always feel the anxiety pulling at my heart.

I might always question myself and struggle with self doubt.

It’s hard for me to ask for the boundaries I need to keep myself safe…

But every day I get out of bed and face the day…

That is a day I truly feel like I’ve won.

Because I am alive….

And of all the things we have, life is the easiest to take for granted…

Because we are given life every second and too late we realize it’s a gift…

No matter what I’m going through…

No matter what may happen…

Even if the worst I have feared comes to pass…

My mind and heart remain grounded in a home I have worked so hard to build.

A home with foundations of love and patience…

A home I will protect and take care of…

Even the smallest of steps feel like a milestone when they’re in the right direction.
