I wore shorts in public yesterday for the first time since 2007.
I wear pajamas with shorts and shorts around my house for the first time since 2007.
It’s almost 100 degrees outside and my house was built in 1850 and shorts feel good, so what, you may say. So I’ll tell you what….
I spent so many years being made to feel disgusting. I use the word disgusting for many reasons. So many details of that I will not go into. There is much I’ve shared here but plenty I have kept private, which I plan to continue to do, fyi.
But what I will says is this: being loved is amazing. It is astounding. It is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before, the way Tim loves me. When I ponder on it I hear the Cinderella song in my head “So this is love….so this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of.” My favorite movie and song as a child. Locked away inside a broken, confused heart, now sings out the truth of love daily. I see with my eyes, hear it with my ears, feel it with my soul. Honesty, authenticity, depth….real love.
I wore shorts in public today for the first time since 2007. And that matters.
