Life is a paradox. It is contradictory, inconsistent and at times, absurd. I thought I understood life before my story even began. There were times when I thought that specific events tore me down, and that all of the dreams I held so close were dying. But, looking at myself, once again, I realize I am more beautiful than I ever was before. Because the hardships that bruised my heart, the realizations that boggled my mind, ultimately served to be the transition I needed in order to experience, to become all that I was meant to be. No one ever said life was easy. In fact, life is difficult– for everyone at some point in time. But to embrace uncertainty is to embrace the being you are; it is to, once and for all, identify yourself beyond any shadow of doubt.
