Reflection 

“She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails” -unknown

{reflection:// the act of reflecting, as in casting back a light or heat, mirroring, or giving back or showing an image; the state of being reflected in this way}

There she sat at the exact same table surrounded by a very similar group of people. This time with a clashing feeling than last holiday. Before, she was numb and broken. Lifeless and frayed. Hopeless and decrepit. Now it was like the young girl had finally busted out of her ol’ cocoon. She was rejuvenated and full of joy. Overflowing with light and love. Her huge smile and quirkiness was back. 

Soaking everything in as best as she could, the past year replayed in her mind. Deep roots settled into Atlanta opening up so many new doors. Connecting her with a much larger family spanning across the country. The self harm behaviors had come to an end and her monster’s voice was somewhat tamed. She had gained control back over her life. The young girl was tackling tasks that she never could’ve dreamed of. She was finally seeing who God truly created her to be.
