Take Me With

“I wanna go to a place where time has no consequence and the sky opens to my prayers.”
– Beautiful, India Arie
I don’t know where people got this idea that I am a strong person. Even my closest friends call me the “Cursor”, the one who leads the way. But unlike Meredith Grey, I admit to being dark and twisty inside. I can count the days in my life when I felt like Little Miss Sunshine. I keep this picture of me because at that one moment in time, my life was perfect. On that quiet island, with just 3 of my dearest friends with me (and the fisherman who took us out on his boat), I couldn’t ask for more. On my days of disquiet, I look to this picture for proof. I know I can be happy, at peace and content. I just don’t let myself be so often enough.
