It has taken me a long time to get where I am.
It has taken strength and tears.
It has taken determination and a few breakdowns along the way.
But I am here.
There may have been a few detours along the way
but I apologize for nothing.
My path has led me to where I am now.
I have gained courage along that path.
I have learned to trust myself and my values
and not to second guess my beliefs.
I have learned that my thoughts matter
and that my advice is appreciated.
I have found strength in my wisdom
and I have found comfort in my gut instinct.
I have made many mistakes in my past,
but valued the lessons learned from those mistakes.
I have followed the roads,
but have been blessed by those detours.
I have accepted my life and where I am
because I am truly happy,
and that is what matters.
My life may not be what others think it should be,
but it is my life.
I am happy.
And I know the best is yet to come,
so I apologize for nothing.
