#2018PositivityChallenge, day 167:
I always said that my four years of high school (thanks, in particular, to the history teacher I often refer to as Her Most Gracious Majesty, the Queen of Fabulosity) taught me more than I had learned in much longer periods, and influenced my life more than anything else ever could have. Today, I am back exactly where this Virginia Beach adventure started four months and two days ago. The smells, the sounds, the sensations are all the same, and that is so comforting. As we say in French, la boucle est bouclée. But, in the meantime, so much else has radically changed, and for the very best. I feel like I am looking at the same beginnings than four months ago, but this time I am much better equipped to, to use a very American expression, nail it. Having arrived here fleeing from devastation, I have since healed my heart and learned to love myself first and foremost, before loving anyone else. I have learned to put myself first, rather than plan my life according to the desires and ambitions of other women. I have found joy and laughter again. I have been flirting again, and feeling young and my actual age rather than at least ten years older, which is something I experience for the first time in my life, feeling young, light and free and unburdened. I have found inspiration to create, manifesting my dreams into reality and living the life I want, no longer listening to those negative people who always delayed those dreams.
I am so, so, so grateful for every event, and lesson learned here. And for the people (including you, @duragdutchess even tough you’re not technically in 757), I have so, so much love to all you beauties!
