I love how comfortable I am being me.

Some people feel like they have to be like someone else to be good or important. I say the sign that you are doing better than you know is when you say I’m here so fast I am 36 I’ll be 37 in January and I never thought I would have gotten here so fast. I love living in my 30s but my childhood was spent at the mercy of verbally abusive kids who didn’t like me at all. I had a good childhood but it wasn’t ideal. It was mine. I remember the pink show boots I got when I was 8 or 9 years old for Christmas and pink is one of my favorite colors.
