One thing this day reminds me of is my really excited quality of throwing myself into new experiences. It's something I'm living by very much so at the moment but for a few months last year, I definitely lost this aspect of me that was so very prominent in my life on this date a few years ago. I was so excited to not avoid being drowned in my nervousness and instead take life in my own hands and build myself up instead of dragging myself down.

Ready to put the past in the past, she applied her lipstick and smiled at herself- she was far more confident these days and she liked approaching life in this wholly positive way. She went over her hair, singing along to Disney songs as she did so. She joked with her brother and left the house, ready for the day.
She had high hopes for this day for secret but happy reasons she would never have admitted. As she breathed in the hopeful air outside, she wondered excitedly if it really would be as exciting as she thought. "It just will," she thought. There was an air of newness she was feeling, and instead of being terrified, she embraced it. And she thanked herself for this every day since.
As she felt a little giggly, new opportunities oozed out of her every move. Today was the day.
And so it turns out: Today was that day.

This day means so much to me; for a couple of reasons but particularly for a special one indeed. Happy March 14th guys!
