I love manifestos! They make me feel so empowered, militant and fierce! I have a life full of things I am proud of but they are dotted with stupendous bouts of beating myself up. It maybe one of the things that I do best…I am an expert! This unique talent started way before I got sick, but I have gotten even better since, after all, I have a whole new set of circumstances to blame myself for. It always begins with “Damn it, if I had only_______(fill in the blank).” I still wrestle with self-worth and I was sure by this age I would have whipped that. I wonder if anyone ever really gets past that. So for right now…and for all of the “right nows” I get…I have to remember that I am enough....right now.
