30 Days of Truth: Day Two

Day 02 Something you love about yourself.

Even though I am a GIANT softie, I also have a very strong backbone. When it comes right down to it, sure, I get my feelings hurt but I bounce back. Every. Single. Time.

So, this is why I chose to write today about what I love most about myself:

I am a fighter.

My "fight" is something I never even realized I had until recent years when my sanity and inner strength were put to the test. I have brought a lot of bad luck upon myself, I admit. I've made stupid decisions, been impulsive, too trusting or naive and even, selfish. But there has been a whole lot of other stuff that's happened that is just, well....LIFE.
Either way you spin it, I've just had to fight for a lot. Whether it's been to maintain my identity or integrity, keep friendships, or end them, pay my bills, keep my head (and spirits) up, defend myself against judgmental people, defend myself against all types of abuse or just fight to be a damn good mother to my daughter, I have been tough my entire life because I've had to be. The defining moment came for me this past year when I felt I couldn't go on with life. I felt I had reached my bottom and there was nowhere else to go. But, I pulled myself up by the bootstraps. I don't know how, I just did. That was my inner fighter coming through.
I love this quality about myself. I pray it never diminishes or changes because frankly, more women need to FIGHT for what they want and need in life.

{*Wouldn't it be great if EVERYONE could think or write about what they love about themselves? Gosh, what a great gift that would be. We don't do it enough but I think we should. Just sayin'...}

I used to love my look, but have to admit am having some issues with it lately...maybe it's getting older? Maybe it's not being as thin as I'd like? I hate insecurity!!! Kori xoxo
