THANK EVERYTHING THAT IS HOLY FOR DERBY
Tonight, I had kind of a shitty experience. Saw someone I am not crazy about seeing, felt self conscious about it. But then I stopped and thought, “I have practice tomorrow.” And then I think about those people that make me feel small or self conscious or angry or sad and what it would be like if they could see me play derby and how that would make them feel. And then I think about how I don’t need them to see me play derby because I know how strong and fierce that I am. Derby has helped me to love myself. It is so empowering and I am thankful for it every day.
I AM DERBY, HEAR ME ROAR
