    I may never win a Nobel Prize,

    cure cancer or become a world famous surgeon. But can say this, I've changed lives for the better, I've achieved happiness with very little and I can honestly say I did make the world a little better then I found it. To me, that's plenty to be proud of.

    Today another college girl

    and I took a toddler back to her house. She was found wondering by herself on our college apartment parking lot. For gosh knows how long. We both felt so relieved. The scariest thing was the mother/ father didn't even know their daughter left the house.

    I am proud to say that I've gone a few months

    now without cutting. I do have scars that I call my "survivor scars" because I've been through hell and back. My advice though? Don't harm yourself. It's not worth it.

    That I am open to change. That although I have trust issues, I try to reach out. Many things to work on, much advice to ask, but I am proud that I am trying to demolish some of those walls by reaching out more.

    I've accomplished being the first one to get ready, after years of being the slowest one in the family to do so. Also getting to bed at an early time instead of 3 am every morning. And finally finished reading a good book.
