I was recently encouraged to take stock of who I was and who I've become. I've made and gone through some pretty drastic changes the past few years. In some ways, I'm just more of who I am. Things I've never allowed myself to experience or feel, things I've been burying away for too long. It's like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders and just allowed me to breathe.
I thought only in black and white. Now I can see the shades of grey.
I was religious. Now I'm spiritual.
I was dependent. Now I'm independent.
I was blind. Now I can think for myself.
I can't say that my life now is easy, but it's definitely my own and that makes it all worth it.
