Don’t Count Me Out
I’ve always hated numbers.
Ok, maybe not “hate” since they do impact my daily life in positive ways.

But I’ve often focused on them too much and have let them play a role in defining who I am, my self-worth.
I’ve always been taller than most. Sometimes it made me want to go crawl in a hole somewhere. I didn’t want to stand out. I wanted to be that cute little girl that everyone coddled and gushed over. I wasn’t “cute.”
Now I know I’m beautiful, with maybe a bit more to love …
