“Like a flower in the desert
I had to grow in the cruelest weather,
holding on to every drop of rain
just to stay alive.
But it’s not enough to survive,
I want to bloom beneath the blazing sun,
and show you all of the colors
that live inside of me.
I want you to see what I can become.” – Christy Anne Martine
Sometimes you have be your own hero.
Sometimes you have to be the one who makes the change.
Sometimes you have to be the one who says: “Enough!”
Who stands up for themselves
And says: “I can’t go on like this.”
And when you find that inner courage, and commit to changing things – a choice that’s never easy and may cost you everything –
You find that you grow stronger, and you’re more resilient.
You find that it was worth it
For you blossom once again.
