"love is something we wait for...
we imagine out first kiss, our first "i love you"
but we never imagine our first heartbreak,
maybe because it is too painful to imagine.
but in a way, the pain of love is what really changes us.
its the losing of love that makes us who we are
the loss of a parent, your first love, who you thought you might be, or your innocence.
the losses are perhaps our first steps out of childhood.
life gets complicated,
but it is also filled with promise,
& the possibilities of opening your heart to new beginnings,
and new dreams in new places.
This life was no longer a fantasy, it was real.
& i knew now, i wasn't searching for something or somebody here.
i was searching for me...
who i was, who i wanted to be.
finding my voice wasn't gonna be easy..
but for the first time, in a long time,
i thought it might be fun"
