I remember once reading something along the lines of "finding strength in vulnerability". Until today I struggled to make sense of that idea. I realize now that I was looking at it all wrong.
Last night I lay my soul bare, I exposed my vulnerabilities. I admitted defeat.
Today I have been lifted and loved and supported. Today I found that my strength isn't something within myself. My strength lies in numbers, in the global family that has adopted me and marked me as one of its own. I am humbled. I am honored.
Today I am strong.
