"Take up room. Embrace your talents. It's okay to think you're beautiful."
On my run this morning by the lake, I saw this sign. Inspired, I took a picture of it, realizing at just that moment what day it was.
Every year on 7/10, I remember the sound of the life flight helicopter propellers going around and around; being wheeled at full speed on a stretcher into the ER.
I remember broken bones, broken clavicle and pelvis, 26 stitches to my face, unable to walk for 3 months, and being in a really chaotic, crazy, painful point in my life.
...and then I reflect on how much my life has changed since then; how my heart is still the same - but stronger, healthier...and so much happier, because I understand what it means to heal from the inside out.
To say how grateful I am to be alive today and in one piece would be an understatement, but I'm reminded of God's love for me, for all of us...and I'm reminded that even when it doesn't feel good, that there's a much bigger story that's unfolding, greater than we can imagine, and to have faith in it no matter what.❤️
