Different

One day, I’ll wake up Different.

The type of girl who does an hour of cardio at least four times a week and drinks green smoothies for breakfast.

The type of girl who is just small–not small with out-of-place back fat.

The type of girl who masters her facial muscles; able to pose and smize at the command of front-facing camera without appearing high or otherwise inebriated.

The type of girl who is graceful; not in danger of tripping over her feet at any moment.

The type of girl whose nervous system isn’t so easily tweaked. Who isn’t overwhelmed by too much sound or too many words or too many moving parts.

The type of girl who can relax into a caress instead of recoiling at the thought of being touched by anyone not selected and painstakingly vetted.

The type of girl excited by possibilities instead of terrified by them.

The type of girl who thinks less–confident in her decisions with no need to nit-pick her past.

The type of girl for whom life is a meal to be enjoyed, not a puzzle to be figured out.

One day, I’ll wake up Different.

The type of girl who looks in the mirror and sees everything she is rather than the sum of what she isn’t.
