    I'm Still Young

    I remember in the youngen days how immature and wild I was. I was always wanting attention by just being wild or getting into trouble. Now that I turned 25 I feel so much more confident and more mature. I have more energy then I thought I would have. I love being this age. I know...

    Wasn't Sure...

    There was a time I wasn't sure I'd live to see 30, let alone my current 34. I spent most of my 20s in and out of psych units, mostly for suicidal thoughts.  Add to that dealing with hardcore domestic violence and some seriously scary health issues...yeah.  It was a pleasant...

    Because

    I am not in my 40's yet and I feel young and free and have all the experience that a chick in her 20's doesn't have yet.  I will feel the same way at 40, 50, 60. and 70 however.

    The Best ...

    I've never felt better.  I am happier, more confident and full of hope and optimism. I can't run as fast as I once could and sometimes curse the fact that my yoga postures are not as perfect as they once were ... but what the heck. They say that age is just a number...
