I share my struggles.
I share the pain I’ve felt.
I share my insecurities.
I share my experiences.
I put myself out there – all of me.
Overall I’ve lived a good life.
I was raised by a loving family – although untraditional, it was a true village.
I never went without what I needed.
I had much of what I wanted.
I’ve loved and been loved.
I had a lot of fun with friends and have a lot of great memories.
I’ve had the privilege of pursuing a variety of educational and professional opportunities.
I married my best friend who unconditionally loves me and supports me. I still don’t know how and why she puts up with me.
I’ve had the privilege of traveling to different places and experiencing different cultures.
I’ve lived a great life and continue to do so.
I put it all out there. I put everything I have into life. I’ve already lived a full life.
I’m grateful for the good. I’m grateful for the adversity. I am who I am because of it. And I like who I am.
I’ll never forget the words a friend once told me. He said I “live a charmed life.” That I do.
