Sometimes I am joyful. I am not always sad. I like to dance and take pictures and write and wear special clothes. I like ammonites and waterfalls and amazonite and elephants. I like to bring people their favorite fruits and unabashedly fail at yoga for the first time. And a million other things to live for. I’m determined to thrive. For vindication. For safety. For a voice. For my potential. To bring joy and happiness and love into the world. To become me. I am not a lost cause.
