We swam, crawled, stumbled a little, and then began walking. As far as I can remember giving up was never an option. The chances of you and me on this planet, suspended in space, existing and surviving is our greatest feat. The billions of people here can cause life to feel recycled, but each of our lives is incredibly unique and rare. Though we may still stumble sometimes, we continue to stand tall. Let us live in the present and reconnect with our dreams. There is nothing you or I can’t get through.

A little inspiration from a young poet 🦋
The b in blue stands for beautiful, but my whole life I did not see
the beauty that was held beneath me
the red her wings held
oh boy it made my heart swell
she was as sweet as a strawberry, but as red as a tomato
but the feelings that built up inside of me felt like a tornado
the insecurities I got from that red butterfly
it made me just want to cry
but as I soared through the sky and saw the colors
the vibrant, beautiful blue was like no other
I saw the beauty in myself and started to believe
I am worth it and that’s all I needed to be
I am the blue butterfly
