So here I am, nineteen years old. I can see and feel that little seven year old me so clearly it's like she's standing right next to me all the time. It fills me with so much joy and sadness to remember back... so I don't go back there very often. Since I had that realization and vision yesterday, I have this new feeling in my chest... It's familiar and yet has been so long since I've felt it so strongly.
2013 has brought me magnificent changes in my body, mind and spirit. I've continued to work the Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and now Al-Anon as well. I surf and write and play and work... and I have fallen deeply in love in a way that I did not think was possible.
