SEPTEMBER 17, 2021: “A Love Note To ME!” …

DEAR “ME”:

Today is your birthday – “Fifty-TWO-Good-To-True”! So, what better way to celebrate yourself and the insanely beautiful life you still get to live, despite your very best attempts to ever so passively, yet ever so aggressively, murder yourself for too many years to count, than to read yourself this “love letter” to the precious body you get to occupy?

When you saw this woman’s words posted on social media recently, they leveled you in the most bittersweet ways. Since that day, you’ve read them to yourself over and over and over again, and knowing you the way I do, I suspect you’ll continue to do so for the remainder of your journey here on Earth. They’re impeccable and powerful to us both!

So, with that, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU once again, thank you JESUS! Amen! You’re “The Real Cat Williamson: Warrior. Motivator. SURVIVOR; CREATURE SLAYING QUEEN!

Love … ME

To anyone reading this, yes, this is one of those songs that has impacted my life in such a profound way that it’s earned a repost in my Diary. Only this time I’ve changed up the words:

Never again! Never give in! Never give in! I wouldn’t have wished that on just anyone, but shee seemed to share my impulse. I wouldn’t have taken that from just anyone, but she seemed to like the result. So I connected the dots and I told her when to stop. I chose to keep on going rather and NOT be something that I’m not. We were creatures of habit. We couldn’t live without it. We didn’t have to answer to anyone. We were chasing the rabbit, like creatures of habit, and no one else knew where we were coming from. And everything has changed, ’cause I didn’t fucking run away. There’s no more need to panic, ’cause it’s no longer tragic.

{ Adapted from “Creatures” ~ by Shinedown}

If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction of any sort, PLEASE pick up your sword and fight your way out of that darkness. Both you AND YOUR BODY deserve so much fucking better than “creatures” trying to destroy you.
