Reverb Prompt 1: Today, I invite you to take a quiet moment to consider: what can you say right now with certainty?
For all the constant change going on around me this year, I actually have a lot of clarity and certainty in some spots, which helps ground me through it all.
First, foremost, and always - I love my sons and am fiercely proud of them. I will continue to believe in, encourage, and support them to the best of my abilities until they fully believe in themselves. They are remarkable men with a resilience that keeps them moving forward. To be this far from them for this long (if you're new here, I'm volunteering in Jamaica for 5 months) is sometimes a challenge for me, but they have risen to the occasion, are creating great lives for themselves, and I love them for supporting me as much as I support them.
Second, at long last, in fits and starts, I am learning to love myself, to accept my body, to cherish my own company, and to communicate my boundaries. Some might say better late than never. I will say there's a ways to go, and I'm appreciative of the people who are patient with the process.
