Waiting for someone to reply to you can sometimes feel like an eternity. Coming up with the perfect reply can sometimes be torturous. For a long while I've felt like I've had so much to share but didn't know quite how to articulate it. In a span of about 2 years, I'd gone under an enormous mental and spiritual transformation. Suddenly, my job wasn't my job and many of my friends weren't my friends anymore. What originally felt like a nightmare quickly became the catalyst that brought my creative juices back to the forefront of my life; a rebirth if you will. Through it all I learned a very valuable lesson: choose yourself first.
