I can do this.
I have done this.
I will continue to do this.

I am strong!
I am looking forward!

I wish I could keep up with my days. All I know is 3 months from yesterday I'll have 5 years. And I remember a time when 5 days was unfathomable.
Keep it up. It's an amazing life and just keeps getting better.

Learning that being alone does not mean being lonely.
Discovering that where I've been is not as important as where I'm going.
