Not Hiding Anymore, by Melissa

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012


Lately I have been feeling that my world has been isolated from the rest of the world. No one understands and I can't talk to the ones I love the most about it. Have you ever have one of those days that you wake up & wonder what happened to your life?

It feels like just yesterday, I was a teenager and I couldn't wait for my life to start. Now I wake up, I'm 34 years old; I work 18 hour days, 7 days a week. Where did all those amazing dreams go? My life was in a rut and this was just the thing to help me jump start my spirit.

“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” - And I am thankful to each and everyone of you!

Being a part of NOH8 Chicago Shoot was like I mattered again. I wasn't hiding anymore. A little part of me is a voice in a Sonic Boom that tells the world, "I'M HERE, whether you like it or not!" Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! I will be here if you need me anytime!

Peace and Love, to you and yours!
