“Look me in the eye.
It’s ok if you’re scared,
So am I.
But we’re scared for different reasons.
I’m scared of what I won’t become.
And you’re scared of what I could become.
Look at me.
I won’t let myself end where I started.
I won’t let myself finish where I began.
I know what is within me, even if you can’t see it yet.
Look me in the eyes.
I have something more important than courage.
I have patience.
I will become what I know I am.”

**I have been debating if I was going to continue posting. The vile coming out of SAMA towards woman is ugly, and is not something I want any part of. One thing I’ve learned this year is that sitting back and doing nothing in the face of ugliness is equally as bad as being a part of it. However, I got to thinking…in the face of that vile, there is an even increased need for the presence of powerful women to contradict it. For me, being a public expression of that is the one thing I can think of that I can do to do my part. Even if it’s for the five people who follow this. Do I support anyone who chooses not to post? Absolutely, 100%.
So going on record: I’m not a dumb bitch. Nor am I a stupid slut. But I am a powerful woman. FIN.
