Tomorrow I won't eat my feelings, I won't try to fill my heart with bread.
Tomorrow I will be that girl that only needs light, love, and air to be fulfilled.
Tomorrow I will make her known once again.
Tonight, I am alone, I am lost, I am seeking comfort in something that makes me feel full, but lacks real substance.
Tonight, I am weak, I am afraid, I am an older version, a smaller version of myself.
Tonight, I have gone back to that empty shell of the past. The one who needs to feel anything, so she eats.
Tomorrow, I will have her back. I will show her she doesn't need to have a full belly to feel.
Tomorrow, I will have the strength to face everything and rise.
Tonight, I will hold my cup of tea and pray.
Tomorrow, I will tell her it will all be ok. I will tell her she can shine brighter.
Tomorrow, I will only be someone I am proud of. I will only be that girl who doesn't need to overeat to feel. I will be the girl who is lighter, brighter, and braver.
Tomorrow, I will know I deserve nothing more than that feeling of fulfillment without guilt.
Tonight, I will just be. No excuses. No explanations. I can love this girl too, for she is the one who truly needs acceptance and care.
Tomorrow is our potential.
Tomorrow is our hope.
Tomorrow is our chance.
But tonight is all we have.
Trying something new here. My goal when leaving Costa Rica was to be more authentic, to live big, and to live without fear. To act more and think less. I hope my vulnerability and courage inspire you to do the same.
