But now I’m just
It’s a word I hold closely-
One of those life-giving words for me.
I want to be vibrant.
If I were starting a school essay, I would say
Webster’s Dictionary states that vibrant is an adjective meaning
Having or showing great life, activity, and energy.
And then I would say how being vibrant is key to life.
And how being vibrant is being energized and active and Life – Full.
And how I’m nothing like this now.
So what happened?
Well first, February.
But there’s more.
The sinking feeling-
That I let sadness and sickness overcome.
That I let my circumstances take away my joy.
Because I forgot God can work through darkness.
So now I’m taking this hardened, ache-y Andrea
And reclaiming my vibrant self,
Remembering it is never too late for a fresh start.
And though I have a suspicion that I might spend my whole life in this cycle-
Forgetting joy and remembering it-
Lightness and darkness-
Vibrant then not-
I won’t let it stop me from being the person I want to be.
And that person is vibrant.
