The reality of where I am is that right before I stood proudly with the statue I was at my first physical therapy appointment already in a lot of pain, and to be honest, I was terrified. I am a very capable badass who has worked huge jobs and functioned for literal decades through insane levels of invasive pain, discomfort, and I know how to surrender to it and endure, but for some reason this was kinda scary. My body screamed just from the commute, let alone starting this 2-3 month journey, but Brooke at SPEAR was so kind and I did it and it hurts but it’s cool. I didn’t plan to find the Defiant Girl and I didn’t even know I needed her today but I did. I also needed Beyoncé but of course that’s every day. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽
