I had just moved:
These songs to me reflect the hope that I have when I first moved to Virginia. I wanted to my life to change for the better and I have the self-confidence and belief that it would. I look back on that moment and know that woman is still in me somewhere.
I left Virginia:
I see myself in these songs striving to accept my life situation and mourn it as a part of life and not the end of my life. It has been amazing looking back to see how fiercely I knew I would survive. I am grateful that we all have more strength than we realize.
When I knew that it was really real
Where I am now:
I’m not sure where my life goes from here but I know that I’m okay. The work before me is my own and not tied to the life I used to have. It has been a long journey but one that has made me a better person. So I bless it as I turn my back and keep walking.
