I feel like I should tell my Twirl story, so here it goes.
When I was younger, I felt like a princess. I used to think that I could be anyone, or do anything, and nobody would be able to stop me.
But then life happened, and I lost my twirl. I got rejected, bullied, and made mistakes that I regret. I haven’t been the same since.
It took me quite a long time to get over my past, and I’m still trying to move on from it. The rejections, scars, and regrets have caused me to live my life the way I never wanted to live, scared and afraid of who is going to reject me next, who is going to hurt me next, and what mistakes I might make next that I may regret later.
So, this is me, sharing how I feel with the world.
I know I’m not perfect, and I’m never going to be. Nobody ever is. We all make mistakes, some that we wish we could take back. But don’t let your past mistakes define who you are today. I learned that at a Twirl event at my church and it has stuck with me ever since I first heard it.
God is not done with me yet. He is still writing my story. I’m still breathing for a reason.
