A Day to Celebrate

Had things played out differently, today I’d be celebrating a second anniversary. They didn’t, so instead I’m going to celebrate myself, the changes I’ve made, and the path of growth I’m staying true to. Here is a list of things that are worthy of celebration today and every day:

  • Recommitting to working toward healing the generational and racial trauma I’ve endured over the course of my life
  • Learning to accept myself as I truly am instead of who someone thinks I should be
  • Ending the pursuit of perfection and accepting that simply being good is more than good enough for anyone, but especially for myself

Today is a day of commitment, of remembering promises kept. May it always be so.
