for most people, february 12th is just a normal day, but for me it's a painful reminder. today marked two years since my life was turned upside down by sexual assault. it changed the way I viewed myself, the world and my future. sexual assault is one of those taboo things people don't know how to talk or ask about, because they don't see physical damage - it's not like I'm missing an arm or have a broken bone - so physically, I appear fine. an integral part of my recovery was (and is!) exercise, so I spent most of today getting outside & sweating out all the doubts, worries and fear I sometimes carry with me. I'm a firm believer that life isn't about what happens to you (no matter how shitty it can be), it's about how you react to it. today & always - I choose courage💜
