I can do this.
I have done this.
I will continue to do this.
DESPITE THE INCREDIBLE ROLLER COASTER OF EMOTIONS THESE LAST FOUR YEARS.
I am strong!
I am looking forward!
Memory and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow. Rose Kennedy once said, "Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them."

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.
