So, it comes the time to say goodbye to 18. What a crazy, wonderful, painful, heart wrenching, beautiful, and cherished year it has been. I have learned so many things. I have said goodbye to some old friends and greeted new ones. I have begun the journey of recovery. I lost a lot, but gained so much more. I have begun to follow my heart and do what feels right. I am so grateful for those who stand by my side as I step into another year of my life.
