Transformation is not made on a whim.

It is the culmination of months and years of deliberate work.

→ A journal prompt here.

→ A therapy session there.

Some days I feel like shit. 

I can ponder why or I can avoid it.

Some days I feel insanely happy. 

I can ponder why or I can avoid it.

Some days of curiosity turn into many days of personal growth.

The person you’ve become isn’t the person you once were.

You’ve transformed into someone with more empathy, kindness, perspective, and bravery than you ever imagined you could.

It didn’t happen overnight.

It wasn’t a spark. 

You had to light a match one day but keep the fire burning through the storm.

It wasn’t easy.

But, looking back.

It was worth every ounce of energy you poured onto the fire to keep it going.
