I smile when I'm trying not to cry and the tears are blurring my vision.
I keep trusting, even when my heart begs me not to.
I sleep, even when I'm afraid of what the dreams might bring.
I run and bike, even when it feels like I can't do it any more.
And even when the memories pinch my heart. Because the pain of all my experience is what makes me the person I am today. I have to be brave and willing to live through my life and hold my head up high the next day.
I don't want to live life in fear. Because I am stronger now, after all the crap has happen.
