I believe in a life where the sweet outweighs the bitter. A life where we full on, full heart laugh. Crinkly eyed, double chinned, head thrown back, unbridled joy. But I believe a life like that comes at a dear cost. The cost of doing the really hard work of knowing who we are and understanding what makes us-us. It means we have to feel all the feelings. Even the really shitty ones. I believe, overall, our power comes from these words:
“I see you. I hear you. I get it. Me, too.”
And that’s what I want for you here. To be understood. Just as you are. Right where you are. Beginning, messy middle, or end. To be able to take a deep breath and just be. And to laugh, really, really hard.
