I love this post. It is a wonderful reflection of Colleen’s spirit and I hope it is an inspiration for all who do not feel okay today. With Love,
Someone once asked me. In a hushed tone. In the midst of a discussion about having been molested as a child:
“How can you be happy and be…..okay?’ She paused and said “when others can’t?”
I knew my answer mattered to her. I knew it was important. Though I did not know the depth of ‘why’ it mattered. I assumed I knew why she was asking. And I was wrong.
I felt I had to answer with care. And without embellishment.
“Because I decided to.”
I wasn’t always okay. I wasn’t always happy. Looking back it seems like I made the decision to be okay and things changed. Insert: finger snap. Like that.
It wasn’t that quick of a change.
It was gradual. But it was consistent. It was progressive. And it was a very good decision.
