This is the day that started it all. Look at that smile. I was grinning from ear to ear just being on stage. There was an amazing group of ladies. Everybody was so unique, so beautiful, so inspiring. Basking in the light and energy of all the ladies there I just wanted to let that moment in time stand still. My family was there and the crowd was amazing you would never have known that it was raining that day.
When we were going to read the results I was sure I scored high enough for 3rd maybe even 2nd but as both names were called I still grinned from ear to ear. I was pretty sure I knew who won. She fully embraced the theme so I already had her pegged as #1 the rest were up for grabs. But I had fun. Me and my girlfriend spent tons of time working on my outfits making everything just so. I practiced You-Tube videos and went to every Friday car show just to make sure my posing was just so. K, what is going on! Why is everybody staring at me? Then I heard it “MISS RUBY SWEETCHEEKS!” everytime I saw that it’s always in Dixie Delight’s radiantly beautiful voice. It was me I was #1 how was this even possible. I am dreaming, I fainted oh why did I wear these pants. NOPE IT WAS ME!!! Dandy was coming towards me, I started crying how is this even possible. Amongst all these beauties. I never thought it was possible to win but now here I was wearing a sash and crown. I knew in this moment I needed to represent these lovely ladies in everything I did going forward because I knew they poured their blood, sweat and tears into too. The courage it takes to be comfortable in your own skin we ALL deserved to win that day.
Every moment in my life continues to build on my character. The highest highs and the lowest lows all combine together to make one unique me. I found this amazing community of women that embraced me for everything that I am and want to be. The out pouring of love and support that continues on a day to day basis with all these beauties has been some of my best memories outside of my family. I have never felt so inspired, so moved, so fulfilled. I feel this intense desire to give back to these women in the same way that they have given back to me. For any of you out there that need, I am here for you, I hear you, I will always be here for you. This is our journey together and I will always provide a positive space and place no matter what is going on. I don’t need to know you to love you. Love comes in so many levels and I know I am capable of loving anybody and anything on some level as long as they are coming from a good heart.
Our destiny is in our hands and we can control the outcome. The more positive energy we can bring together the brighter our world’s would be and the less shadows we would have to hide behind.
