Super Hero Chucks
Today, one of my very best friends told me to put on my Wonder Woman chucks because I am a super hero.
These shoes in which she speaks are a metaphor. The path I have walked through life has made me the person I am today. It has made me stronger. I look at who I was at 19 or 20 years old. Even at 24-years-old. I have come a long way.
That young woman no longer exists, but memories of her are etched into my being. They serve as reminders of not only how far I've come, but how strong I am.
No one understands your struggle as well as you do. No one has walked in your shoes. Maybe their paths have been similar, but they haven't walked it in your shoes.
Hold your head high and remind yourself that you ARE strong.
And never forget those who reach out and take your hand along the way, refusing to let go. Those who only make you feel loved and strong. (Should they make you feel weak or bad about yourself, then let go of their hand. You only have two hands. Reserve them for those who love you the most. Hold tight to them!)
Never take them for granted.
Odds are, they're wearing their super hero chucks as well!
