If you had asked me 12 months ago where I thought I would be today, I would not have said here. If you ask me today what I would tell myself if I could go back to 12 months ago, I’d say “get here sooner”. The last 12 months has not been easy. Hell, life right now isn’t easy, but I wouldn’t change it. For all the panic attacks, and times I thought I couldn’t, I now have a manuscript I’m proud of and I’m closer to my dream then I’ve ever been before. For all the times I’ve hated myself and felt like a victim, I know myself better than I ever have. I’m stronger and braver than I thought possible. I know exactly who I want to be and I’m far prouder of that than of who I was 12 months ago.
