I am not perfect. I still struggle everyday with negative thoughts and intense emotions but I have learned to cope. I have learned to recognize ego (fear) based thoughts verses my authentic thoughts. I have learned how to manage them and keep them from overpowering who I really am. I’ve learned acceptance and forgiveness. I’ve learned to let go of expectations and to enjoy what each moment brings without having to feel disappointed. I made the choice to change. I made the choice to become better than I was before. I am not perfect, my life is not perfect but I have faith that everyday can be a new beginning. That every day I am alive I am given another chance to become more aware, to grow and connect. I may never meet you face to face. I may never look into your eyes or even know your name but I love you. I am connected to you and I want you to succeed. I have faith in you and all you have to offer. May you find peace wherever you go!
