I chose to see myself and my own life as good. Sometimes when I look for my worth and I can’t find it anywhere I consciously choose to tell myself “I am just as good as anyone else.” I know sometimes people may say or feel like they are better than I am, but I chose to say “that isn’t true” and I keep movin’. I don’t want to have issues with other people if I don’t have to. I stay in my own lane, and I try to live and enjoy my life. I am proud of who I am. I like the woman I have become. I feel comfortable just the way God created me. I know if I were to seek my worth in certain areas I just may not be able to find it there.

I believe in God. I try to be nice to other people. I am easy going. I know when God intends to bless me that I am blessed to be a blessing. I know God is with me. He is the peace in the midst of chaos in my life that I can’t explain but I am so thankful that God is there and I believe that God is there. I never want to die. I know God was there on a day I felt scared and wasn’t sure what to do. I had a supernatural peace wash over me several years ago. I made peace with an illness that was so difficult for me. I sleep better most nights and so I give God praise first and I thank God for supportive parents and the few supporters I have I try to think of them also.
