I now believe the only way back is to truly find out who I am. After 2 months on SP with all of you amazing people I have learned so much. I now know who I am and were I'm going. I learn something new about myself everyday. This is the first time in a very long time I have complete awareness. I feel so awake. I know this is the beginning of an incredible journey and having you all with me is a real blessing.

He signed up for a black card so I could go with him. My attitude has been I was going to support him and I would be able to get some time in to add to my SP tracker. Not really pushing myself at all while there. I basically knew what I wanted to accomplish while... Sun, 28 Apr 2013 20:30:42 EST
