Strong, brave, fearless… But I am? These words aptly describe a warrior, a person who is indestructible, bold and courageous. A person who can take on the fiercest army and come out unscathed. And I am sadly none of these things. Not strong, not brave and certainly not fearless.

Funny how social media works, I can put up a picture and some interesting words next to it, and you look at it and automatically associate those words to the person in that picture.
