This is me.

One week after a life-changing surgery. One week older, wiser.

My life is irrevocably different and yet, I still recognize my reflection. I look the same, and somehow, different. It’s there in my eyes – a knowing, a softening, an understanding. A checkmate. A surrender.

I now know that my future will not be any version I’ve ever imagined.

As if promises were made. As if I could want something into being. As if wishes were horses. As if it were that simple.

As if.

If only.

Still, the days push me forward. I feel the tension, the awakening, and it moves me. Ever forward.

This is me, on the cusp – becoming someone I’ve yet to know.
