V is for Victories

V is for Victories. Plural.

Not a single, majestic, triumphal victory, but the little, often underappreciated, often underestimated and still so precious daily victories.

All the times you rose above your fears, they are victories.

All the times you sobbed “I can’t take this anymore”, and then you took it, and shone, they are victories.

All the times you thought you were drowning in your tears, but you wiped the tears away and made it through another day, they are victories.

All the times you were hurt, betrayed, abandoned and you decided nevertheless to let your mind, heart and arms opened for the world, they are victories.

All the times you found a courage you did not know you had, and you smiled acknowledging that you were tougher than you imagined, they are victories.

All the times you realised you could not make it by yourself, and put aside the pride, and asked for help, they are victories.

(and making it almost to the end of the A to Z challenge, is a small victory too)
