Here is learning.
Here is becoming independent, and finding out who I'm meant to be.
Here is realizing that I can't please everyone.
Here is finding the people who are worth trying to please.
Here is stress.
The good kind of stress,
The kind that forces me to take steps to accomplish what I want in life.
Here is family.
Here is taking time to appreciate the little things,
The things that shaped me.
Here is memories.
Here is pain.
Here is hope.
Here is gaining strength.
Here is rising above, refusing to drown.
Here is knowing that mistakes don't shape you.
Here is not my final destination, but it's a stop along the way.
I'm getting there.
But here, here is where I am today, and here is okay.
