Be the Best You
Everything in my life feels like its falling into place.
Both my brothers have graduated from high school. They are both turning into great men. My sister is a mommy… I still find it crazy to say that. My nephew is the by far the cutest, greatest, most amazing thing to come into my life. I look forward to finally holding him in my arms & never letting go of that kid. My brother-in-law is such a great husband, father, & friend. My mother is part of my life again. I don’t think she’s 100% ok with me being gay, but she here for me now. She finally seems at peace now that all her children are doing good in life.
I may not have someone special in my life right now, but someday I will. Hopefully someone that will know when I’m happy & when I feel down. Someone that I can spend the rest off my life with. Someone I can share all my hopes & dreams with. Someone I could one day call my Husband.
So I stand here today happy and with a smile on my face and can truly say that I am blessed. This is the day that I will remember that I truly felt like a man. A gay man. A man non the less. I am not afraid of what others may feel or say about me.
I am the captain of this ship that is my life and I’m forging my own path. One that I can stand by and be proud of.
To say today was a good day would be an understatement. DOMA & PROP8 are now in the past along with all my uncertainty of the future.
The only thing that could have made this day any better would have been having my dad here to share this tremendous victory.
I’m thankful for all the people in my life past, present, & future.
It All Gets Better From Here.
Why must I hide?!?!
Today is my 27th birthday and I think I’m finally at that point in my life that I can say this now, “I DON’T GIVE A FUCK WHAT YOU THINK OF ME ANYMORE!”
