I arrive at twenty three years old well on my way to becoming the woman I hope one day to be. In the past year I have endured incredibly difficult challenges; celebrated beautiful moments of success, happiness, and love; and strengthened the ability to nurture and cherish and be gentle with my soul. I arrive here confident, proud of who I am and the struggles I have overcome.
I look ahead to the future, and hope that, as I hope for all of you this very moment, it may bring clarity, passion, inspiration, creativity, laughter, trust, adventure, and compassion.
Happy birthday to me!
