If anyone knew me, they knew what these three black brackets meant to me: Life, Death, and Rebirth. Life, being the life I was given— to live it to the fullest and without reagents. To find the good in all that is shitty, even if I do run out of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. 'To build relationships in my lifetime, and to develop them into something beautiful. Death, being the many, many, many times I've cheated death (yes, that was a Final Destination reference). And, to not fear this stage of life because it simply means that my purpose has been served; people always give this negative connotation to Death as of it were the Black Plague. But, no, it's just a cycle that all people go through and we all have to come to accept that— I have. And Rebirth, this is where I feel like Jean Grey most; I've lived my life, I killed myself, and now I've resurrected and become a god. In all seriousness, I've come to terms with the fact that our weaknesses are our greatest strength and to reform, and to, essentially, Rebirth these into positive thoughts, and that will be so much more healing and therapeutic in the end.
Long story short: three bracelets from my local Target serve as my daily ritual.
