RE: ACCEPTING LIFE ON LIFE’S TERMS — AND WORKING THROUGH THE FEAR.
I went to see “Mean Girls” by myself last night and it was fun! I’m proud of myself and want to start not being afraid of doing things on my own. I guess I’m just looking to get my life a little more on the track I want it to be on and I want to stop letting other people push me around and make me feel down. It’s my responsibility now and I’m the only one who can truly get the job done for myself. So be brave Maris. Many things in life are difficult, but the best and sweetest things in life come from the deepest, darkest moments of despair. That’s when true priority becomes clear.
