December 27,2010 I made one of the toughest decisions of my life. I cried hugging my parents goodbye as I boarded a plane by myself for the first time in my life. I was headed to a year long program to turn my life around. I wanted to give up on life. With a lot of support,love,and hard work I can’t even begin to explain to anyone how much this all means to me. The rawness and realness that comes from living a life from the heart is immeasurable. There are no words to express my feelings and gratitude.
And now,in one week,I will be graduating from a 5 month legacy program that has challenged me to great extents. I want to thank everyone who has been there for me. I am finally finding the real me and real life I have spent years looking for.And for anyone going through a hard time, you are not alone.There is hope. I know because I found it when and where I least expected to and I believe you will find it too. Let go of fear and surprise yourself. “knowing your limits is not what will get you to where you want to go” dare to try something new and never give up.
