I have transformed. I'm some kind of freelance maniac. The space around me has become an extension of my body. I extend my roots and drink from the Death Wish Coffee in my horn next to me. I soak in the life of the sun from the windows in front of me and I soak in the energy of a new life from the screens and outlets around me. I make my own roots, I make my own future. I grow my leaves to become stronger, I find connections wherever I can to the people who will water me and help me flourish. I soak up the rain of life, the harsh times and hard moments, and use them to grow instead of drown. I find new ways to be the person I want to be every moment of every day. I don't let setbacks and emotions get the best of my resolve.
I feel myself shaping my future for the first time in my life.
I never knew what I wanted to do and I was hung up on that for years. I still don't know exactly what the future holds but like the adventures I like to throw myself into, just going is the only step I need right now. And each step I take is less about finding the end, but molding the world around me to get myself where I need to go.
I will falter, I will fail. But my bark, my armor, the things that protect my heart are strong. I don't need a miracle anymore. I was given one.
Now is the time to cherish and use it.
