I wish I’d known from the beginning that I was born a strong woman.
What a difference it would have made!
I wish I’d known that I was born a courageous woman;
I’ve spent so much of my life cowering.
How many conversations would I not only have started but finished if I had known I possessed a warrior’s heart?
I wish I’d known that I’d been born to take on the world; I wouldn’t have run from it for so long,
but run to it with open arms.
