Six more weeks and I get put in for a transitional center! It feels great to be nearing the end of this long journey. I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress over the last few years and this year more than any.
This year has been a great year so far. My son and I have really developed a close relationship since covid restrictions have been lifted. I’m thankful for that more than anything. It’s reassuring to know that when I come home I won’t be a stranger to him.
I’ve spent a lot of time this year getting back in touch with some of the passions I had when I was younger, writing, poetry, martial arts, and trying to get in touch with the artistic side of myself. I’ve really found a lot of peace in this. Sometimes I feel like we let the stress and opinions of others cloud what it is that we truly want.
So, I’ve made up my mind this year that I am going to live for what I know will make me the person that I feel I should be. In the end if we don’t understand our true selves can we actually say that we understand anything? And if we are not loyal to our true selves can we ever be loyal to anyone else?
