'i matter' was the very first bone sigh i ever wrote! when i sat down and wrote it, i did so to make a gift for someone. she was going thru some big changes in her life and i felt we had similar struggles. when i sat back and read the quote, i knew instantly that i had written this about myself without even intending to. i cried when i realized that and brought it to my counselor. we both knew i had to keep writing.
that was well over ten years ago and every single time i read this quote, i realize how much further i have traveled down the road to believing in myself. someone once told me that i lived my way into the bone sighs. with this quote, i truly believe that. i love that it started out as an offering for someone else, shone in my face what i was walking thru and not even realizing, and has been something i have been living my way into ever since.
