Look at how far I have come. My goodness.

Sometimes I cannot believe how far I have come. I feel good about myself. I dress up. I love getting dressed up and putting on my costume jewelry. I can tell God is real. I healed myself through writing. I believe in God and the afterlife. I don’t know how I know things I know but I’m a spiritual person. I love being Ayesha now. I like to dance to music when I’m alone. I believe in Heaven and I see with spiritual eyesight. I know I’ll be okay. I will continue to take care of myself. This is a journey. I feel like I’ve done quite well despite my diagnosis. I live fuller now in my 30s than I ever have in my life!
