This is where I want to be and here I am. The last time I can remember feeling this way so completely, I was a girl. It was in a brief moment between day and night when the sun hit the earth perfectly, turning everything gold and pink. In that breath of time, I was my own person making my own decisions. I felt powerful, alive, confident. Getting that back is truly amazing. And long overdue.
