I feel... like I am slowly learning who I am and who I want to become even though I have a long road of healing, forgiving, and patience ahead of me.
I wish... that I could live closer to every member of my family. I miss them so much.
I need... to learn how to choose my battles because sometimes, it isn't worth it to lose someone you love.
I am worthy... of love not only from others but from myself as well.
I am thankful for... everything that I am blessed with even when I don't deserve it. There are so many people that go without every day.
I would like to... leave this world a better place than I found it.
I dream about... a day when I am in absolute peace with my body.
I enjoy... the moments after a good, hard run. I love feeling accomplished.
I listen... to others when they need me because it's essential for every person to know that they are important, that they are loved.
I appreciate... my parents more and more as the days goes on -- how intelligent, loving, and forgiving they are. I need to be more like them.
I know... that it will take patience and dedication to reach every goal I have set for myself. (Patience is not my strength!)
I remember... what I was doing 12 years ago today. I remember not only the pain but also how we came together to support and love one another. I'm remembering the heroes, victims, and their families today.
