A New Day

A new chapter in my life has officially begun.

Yesterday marked the end of a journey. A journey of tears, joy, excitement, frustration and unknown. I will never regret any part of the previous chapter. It made me into who I am; it taught things that I couldn’t have learned any other way. It molded me, strengthened me, and taught me confidence, patience and love. I am thankful for the steps I have taken to get to where I am now and for the memories that have come along with each step.  

Understandably, along the way, I have not always had unconditional support from those around me. I made a choice that not everyone would make, I chose me, and the peace I currently feel as a new, gleaming, empty page turns, gives me confidence that I made the right choice, if for no one else, for me.

Today is a new day with the next chapter just waiting to be written. I know it’s cheesy, but for the first time I feel like the world is at my fingertips. I can do what I want for my joy. I can make my own choices and my own decisions. It is a scary and yet exhilarating feeling knowing that I can only hold myself accountable for whatever comes next in my life.

The last page has been turned and now it’s on to Chapter 2, and I must say Chapter 2 looks like it has the potential to be pretty darn great.
