Very recently I have have found my voice. It has taken me a long time to get here but now that I am here I plan to speak out more and let others finally know what is on my mind and what I stand for.
“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand”
You know you have actually never seen yourself. Even when you look at yourself in the mirror you are actually seeing an image that your brain created of what you look like. In many ways it is accurate to what other people see when they look at you, For example, brown hair, blue eyes and plus sized. For many people the image looking back at them is inaccurate or they do not like what they see. Everyday is a struggle with the mirror showing you everything you don't want to see.
It has to be said everybody is struggling one way or another right now. Usually when we are struggling we go to our friends or our families or our therapist but right now it leaves up with a bunch of mixed emotions.
At the beginning of the space race, there was a motion to put man in space fastest. No grammar did not matter the only thing that did matter was beating the Russians, except when it came to putting a woman in space. Russia beat us by almost 20 years by sending Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova. It was not because we did not have competent women ready to go to space, in fact, there were thirteen of them and they were called the Mercury Thirteen, but because at the time women were still seen as belonging in the kitchen.
