浮世は夢 Life is But a Dream - these days I have to pinch myself and ask if this is real life. All the love and support from everyone has really shaken me to my core. I think back to that little girl who used to doodle in her sketchpad on the floor of her house while her parents were physically fighting, throwing and breaking things, who was being verbally and sexually abused. If only she could glimpse into the future now and know that everything is going to be okay. She would be proud. I compare myself to my past self, not others. And I do it now, to teach my daughter to be herself and follow her dreams. Thank you all, truly!
