Packing away memories

So, as I’m putting away all the Christmas decor today, I’m thinking of you. Thinking of all the memories we made and the love we shared. I wish I could have had you longer in life, but it wasn’t meant to be. I’m sorry you couldn’t stay.

This is the last thing you gave me before you left and it is still one of my favorite things, ever. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you left because to me it feels like it’s been a lifetime. I hate how things feel so different now without you; nothing will ever be the same. 

Until we met again, I’ll visit you in my dreams and keep you alive in the memories I carry with me. 

though your body
is now free
and your soul
is at rest
I miss you 
and I wish
you were here

My warrior women

For all my ladies, all my warriors, and all my queens – this is an ode to you. Yes, YOU!

be confident
be strong
never bow down
don’t be defined by anyone 
don’t allow your past to determine your path

and when someone tells you all the things “they think” you cannot be, you keep pushing forward and make it known that you cannot be stopped, you WILL NOT be stopped

let others see the fire in your skin and the crown’s power upon your head. You are bathed in sunlight for a reason. You are right here and right now for a reason. We need to be building each other up and seeing the true beauty in ourselves and others 

never seek the approval of others, for it’s not needed as you already know your worth

so, all my beautiful ladies, this is for you. I believe in you, I stand with you, and I am part of you
