Be Proud To Be Yourself
“Follow your dreams…”
The voice on tv seemed to be talking directly to Tim. He really needed a reason to keep going.
“Even you can be whatever you want. You just have to believe in yourself. Stop wasting your time waiting. Get up and seize the day.”
This woke up something inside of him. He ran to the closet that still held some of his ex-wife’s clothes. He put on a dress and high heels. Then he put on his grandmother’s brooch and wore it like a badge of honor. For the first time, he felt whole and complete.

Awesome! And I love how you used the brooch as a badge of honor, Heather.
I really enjoy your prompts. It gives me a great way to challenge myself each week.
