I read that in a magazine once. It spoke to me.
I used to focus so much on the negative in my life; imperfect parts of my body, intense emotions I had to deal with, people whose personalities conflicted with mine, feeling incompetent. My world was full of insecurity and fear.
I was never good enough for myself.
I could be happy on the outside, but inside was often turmoil.
And you know what? I'm glad I went through that.
It's OK to feel bad sometimes. To feel inferior, to feel angry, to feel.
It reminds me how good life can be.
I embrace a day of negative emotion.
It reminds me I'm alive.
It pushes me to live life with vigor.
So give me sunshine, give me pain.
Give me hope through the strain.
Fill with energy, but allow it to drain.
I can feel beautiful.

For those of you who know me, you may believe this is what my future home will look like.
Though it's hard to believe, I could not stand living with that many cats.
I'd like to have 2 or 3....and 2 border collies...maybe throw a ferret in there....parrots are kinda cool too.....
Well. It may be a zoo, but not simply a feline house. Case closed.
Oh, but I've just remembered!
I went on a missions trip and a girl on my team works at raising WILD CATS. The level of epicity is so high.
"....Can I have a mountain lion?"
