I am in awe of the woman I was 12 years ago today. She was sick, suicidal, beaten down, scared, suffering from PTSD and had been using drugs 24/7 to numb the constant emotional pain she was in. She woke up that day willing to ask for help, willing to face horrible physical and emotional withdrawals, willing to be punched in the gut with the guilt and shame that emerged when not high, willing to say help, and accept it and do what was suggested, for 1 day. It’s a miracle to me that such a broken girl could walk straight that day. That day changed the course of my life. That one 24 hour period Saved. My. Life.
There have been many miraculous and devastatingly hard days since then but none would have been possible without that first 24hr period.
As much as this little girl matters, deserves a peaceful, joyful beautiful existence, so do you.
Please don’t think that what u do today, in just one day, doesn’t matter. There are tiny miracles everywhere. Some we can’t see until our eyes are clearer, our heart more free.
You’re a miracle and you matter.
