This week I completed my first semester back to school. After a lot of years of believing I was a failure, or that I didn’t have what it took after all, or that I couldn’t, or wouldn’t, I’m here. Back where I started. But this time, I’ve lived through enough to know that everything in that dark, shadowed path had to be thought, and then it had to be proved wrong. I had to recognize each of those fears and feelings, and then I had recognize them as wrong.
Here’s to all A’s.
Here’s to coming full circle, stronger and happier and better.
Here’s to finding ourselves.
Here’s to never quite finding ourselves, because that’s what makes life one big adventure.
2017, you’ve got some pretty big shoes to fill.
