It took me most of the day to process an experience from this morning.
Our friend,Jan, surprised us with a visit. She gave us a generous financial donation. And we are so appreciative.
However, what she said about how Freed Spirits has impacted her was priceless.
It was raw.
It was real.
It was inspiring, validating, reassuring that all the effort we’ve all put into the rescue is worth it.
I’ll never forget this experience as long as I live.
Thank you, Jan Schwartz-Foos, for such a meaningful gift. 🙏

I often feel like people would prefer I was different.
Like, it would be more convenient if I went along to get along.
And it would be truthfully.
I knew that in high school it would have been easier not to wear combat boots or shave my head, or shop at thrift stores and perfect the right amount of saucy bitch and smart girl.
But I did it anyway.
Who I am grinds at my heart.
When I try not to be her, it's painful.
Oh yes, I've conformed.
I've tried my best to fit in.
But I always feel like a phony.
I once bought a pant suit for a job interview and felt literally like a clown despite the fact that it was a lovely suit and I even accessorized it well.
I had a professor tell me once that I should take out my nosering for a jobtalk I was giving went I was still in academia and I thought, if they can't handle my fucking nose ring then that's definitely not the job for me.
But I internalized that I'm doing something wrong by being me instead of the idea that maybe the world isn't big enough for all the ways we want to and can be.
It's probably why my work has always centered around empowerment.
Trying to let people know that it's okay not to fit even when the whole world seems to be demanding your compliance.
I tell to others to be their themselves, to live their truth, constantly.
It has to be because I need to hear it.
Over and over.
Until I'm brave enough to fully live it.
