I’m not going to lie to you – I cried a teeny tiny bit on my walk this morning. I was listening to Cheerleader and thinking how funny it is that I play love songs to myself.
I am my cheerleader now. For years I have been the one I go to when I need advice. It’s true that I used to have to get inebriated to access that part of me, my former enemy and lifelong thorn in my side. It’s also true that eventually I had to branch out and find other cheering voices/differing opinions to add to my own. But when it gets right down to it, the voice in my head is my best friend and I love her.
Today that voice in my head was telling me that I can do this. And I believe her, without a doubt.
