I've come back from a trip where I was meant to go 'find myself,' and actually have. It's not like I can answer the question of "who are you" without any doubt or hesitation. But I know who I am right now. I know that I am finding comfort in the discomfort of not knowing.Read More
I've gone further than I would even imagine I could've at this point. I never thought I'd actually see myself thriving as I've had.
