Who knew that I could choose a different path after wandering along the wrong one for so long? Who knew that by listening to others speak their truth, I could find my voice? Who knew that I—a girl armed at all times with a plan and a to-do list— could love a journey without a destination? Who knew that one day I would seek to understand even more than I seek to be understood? Who knew that one day I would come to celebrate two birthdays— the day that my life began and the day that I chose to really live? Who knew that saying the words “I need help” are the most empowering words in human language? Who knew how much I could enjoy my own company and not feel the need to justify when choosing solitude?
