I pose a toast to everything that has killed me inside and out, that I never let it take over or make my insanity show. I won't break down and let my wombs seep out with desperation. I won't crash and burn at the sight of my biggest fear showing it's face at the doors of my desires and dreams. I will constantly fight until I'm able to do everything and anything it takes to get me where I need to be.  

Thank you to the struggle, without you I promise I wouldn't know what breakthrough feels like.  The breakthrough that has shown me that I'm strong enough and well enough to do whatever I was afraid to do.  Thank you to those long nights where I couldn't sleep, or those mornings I felt would never come. Thank you to pain I felt with every rejection and betrayal.  Thank you to those moments I felt of freedom, joy, and peace.  Thank you to silent moments of war and every victory.  Thank you to sleep and relaxation. Thank you to support and love.  Thank you for self-realization and self-acceptance.  Thank you for words that become actions and lessons. 

Thank you.

Thank you to the struggle, without you I promise I wouldn't know what breakthrough feels like.
