I recently bought myself a crown.
It is the most extravagant gift I have ever received - for myself or from another. I can't stop looking at it, and each time I do, I am moved. Sometimes by pride, sometimes awe, and sometimes to tears. It's not because of its beauty or perceived value, but because of what it represents to me.
I bought this crown to celebrate the part of me that has triumphed over Her past & for the part of me, that doubted She ever would.
I call this part of myself, Victoria Reigns.
And Victoria needed a crown. <3
