An honest, simple account of my day, Saturday, June 8th, 2019.
My heart is full today.
I am happy to be surrounded by my family.
I am happy to be breathing fresh air.
I’m happy to be eating good food, to be laughing, to be alive.
I am free.
I am grateful to live in America, I’m proud of who I’ve become, I’m content with my life.

But you see, I had all of this 5 years ago too, but I was miserable.
I was suicidal, I hated myself, I had no healthy relationships.
I had all of this then, but my heart was far from full.
My circumstances didn’t change, I did.
I’m so thankful I went on that journey so I could learn how to enjoy my life.
I can now appreciate spending time with people I love.
I’m not stressed about work on Monday or about how I look.
I’m not scared to get on the paddleboard and risk falling in the ice cold water.
I am free.
I am living life.
I’m at peace with the present moment.
I can smile and know that everything is okay.
Any challenge that comes my way, I can handle it, because I have taken care of me first.
I’m not ashamed to smile and to bask in life’s greatness.
Today, I wholeheartedly choose to be me.
