I’ve spent a great deal of my time in recent days reflecting on the past year as it quickly begins its descent into the New Year.

My mind has been blanketed in a fog. 

I’ve been in a lot pain (for another time). 

I feel like I failed yet again this week on my road to recovery (also for another time). 

I’m just so sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Does that make me weak?

A good friend sent me this quote today as a reminder. 

She called me a warrior. 

I argued her point of view. Then I looked up its definition.

I found this. A warrior is often used to describe someone who is strong and doesn’t give up easily. 

I guess that makes me a pretty bad ass mother fucking warrior. 

I wanted to share this quote with my tribe of wounded warriors out there who, as you also begin to reflect on your 2021 highlight reel, to gently remind yourself that if the only thing you did this past year was survive this battle while wearing your armour of steel, then you my friend are a pretty bad ass warrior too.
