risk

#Reverb12, Day 10
What was the greatest risk you took in 2012? What was the outcome? 
 

I breathed. I laughed. I mothered. I forgave. I gave a gift. I got out of bed. I went off medication. I mourned. I remembered. I stood under the Milky Way. I made wishes. I dreamed. I made goals. I cried. I savored. I volunteered. I wrote letters. I let go, let it go, and let it go, again. I bit my tongue, then let it loose.  I went back on medication. I submitted essays. I taught. I believed. I prayed. I watched. I served. I wrote. I fought. I accepted. I wandered. I aged. I connected. I shut out. I opened my arms. I struggled. I held tight. I gave thanks. I enjoyed. I loved. Yes, I loved.

And in the end, I won.
