Always the bright side
I'm known as a very positive person.
Friends and family alike comment on how I manage to stay chirpy, and always see the best from a situation.
Regular readers will know that was not always the case - I had several very dark years following the assault/head injury/career loss/homelessness - but I do choose how to be, now I am in better control of my thoughts and emotions.
I am very very lucky.
Many people look in the mirror and genuinely don't like what they see - grey hair, wrinkles, too much body mass - whatever: I don't think I know anyone else who is completely happy with what they see looking back at them.
But I do.
I love my face, my curly hair, my body.
My quirky tattoos, my wrinkly bits, my scars.
Yes, there are scars. Yes, there are wrinkles. Yes, I have a few pounds excess around the waist.
But that is me!
It is Tracey looking back at me.
I am alive and I am well.
Sending you all love and light,
