Change although terrifying
Now lives at the edge of my bed every morning, coddles me, holds me captive in its arms like a lover or a friend, and reminds me that I don’t have to remain the woman I was five years ago.
Reminds me that’s I no longer have to exude the same characteristics of the woman I was yesterday.
Instead, I am capable of giving birth to a woman who is more confident,
Or maybe more assertive,
Or maybe overall more woman than I once was.
Do you know what that’s like?
To be able to give birth to yourself and the world around you?
My becoming was not easy.
Stepping into this woman was not easy.
I have sacrificed
My old self to be here
Friendships to be here.
Love to be here.
There is not a step that I regret.
I am thankful for my journey.
And physically my body has adjusted to the life I have grown to live.
We are not translating anymore my body and me.
We are solely communicating with those who can comprehend our love language.
Here’s to becoming a woman.
Here’s to change.
