You’ve been exactly what I needed you to be. You’ve been a place of new beginnings. The first place I ever moved to, my first apartment, the first place I lived with my husband, the place I started my business and blog. I had a lot of new beginnings and I was only able to have them because of you. You helped me grow. You helped me heal. You nurtured me in ways I could never have asked and for that I will always thank you for. I was weary of you and a bit afraid but you showed me the beautiful things that I have and the wondrous things I need to work on. But most of all you made me feel safe, secure and capable. You held a mirror up to my face and refused to move it until I acknowledge the woman staring back at me and learned to respect, love and treasure her. Thank you. I’ll always love you for that.
