This is a title I wrote a while ago, when I was feeling strong. This title was written on a day when I felt like there was no problem too big and nothing I couldn’t overcome. I have lots of days like that. Days when I am confident, self assured and happy. On these days I feel like the me I think I am, and the me I want other… Read More »Today I feel brave
