Today, I grew a little on the inside. Not in a way I expected and I’m sort of shocked by it. Pleasantly surprised by my own behavior.

 

See, this morning, I woke up to something amazing. Someone copied my last blog post. Changing enough words that it wasn’t exactly the same, but I was still in there, from beginning to end, down to the last sentence.

 

At first I was taken aback and pretty pissed off. I felt violated, like I had been robbed of something that was mine. Something I created.

 

I wasn’t sure how to respond.

 

I could message this person, but they would laugh it off like they didn’t know. Oh really? That’s funny. Great minds think alike.

 

I could see it play out as if it really happened.

 

I could leave a comment on their post, saying nice post. With eyeball emojis. Sending the message: I see you, bitch. Like a silent threat, only the two of us would know.

 

Or I could do nothing.

 

I could let it go.

 

Three choices. Which would it be.

 

When I wrote this “stolen” post, I didn’t think it was good enough. I didn’t want to post it. But I did. And it struck a cord with people. So much so, that it was copied.

 

My little blog post.

 

The one I didn’t think was good enough.

 

Today, I stepped aside from my anger. Today, I learned I was good enough. My work is valued. My voice is valid.

 

Today I won.
