Good Morning, beautiful

This morning I woke up to the sound of water running, the smell of coffee brewing and the sight of a thin layer of frost blanketing the yard. As I sat up and stretched, I could only think, "I feel pretty content right now. I'm ready to embrace the day. No, not ready. I'm excited."

Though everyone has there own battles, mine does not appear to be as excruciating, today. I have a family who loves me, friends who support me and a whole life to look forward to. Surely I could dwell on my mistakes, faults and imperfections, but to what extent will those thoughts lead me to the brighter future I dream of?

I need to mention someone who has changed my life and helped me progress to where I am today. This beautiful, talented, strong young lady has been like a long lost sister to me. From the first time we sat, hovered over our massive piles of hospital cafeteria food until now, Brittni and I have confided, trusted and supported each other. We like to joke that we are each other's 'rocks' because how grounded we keep ourselves. I look at her and see such beauty, such potential. I know she could WILL be successful in good time. I am baffled every time I see sadness and hopelessness in your eyes because I just can't understand why she doesn't see what I see in her. So many others admire her style, her passion and her endless determination. I guess it has helped me realize how much I tend to 'catastrophize' my situations and problems, when realistically they are merely small bumps in the road.

She is one of the main reasons I was able to wake up and smile today, as she continuously inspires me to be the 'Rebecca' others claim I am or could be. Brittni, hang in there, sunshine, good things happen to good people when least expected. And as for the realm of fashion--look world, Brittni in Black is coming for you.
