Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought she was happy.

Then, she realized she could be so much more than simply “happy," 

So she started doing things that scared her,

thrilled her,

and challenged her.

She let go of the things that kept her “safe”

and broke down the bars holding her back.

She let herself be loud,

bright,

to take up the space that she had kept herself from occupying.

Guilt,

shame

and stigma

were evicted to make room for

pride,

and confidence.

This is my tribute to the girl who was brave enough to embrace change.
