- I’m doing the best I can.
- I will allow myself to be seen.
- I apply the advice of an acting coach gave me to all aspects of life: Go further. Don’t be afraid. Put it all out there. Don’t leave anything on the floor.
- I will not be a mystery to my daughter. She will know me, and I will share my stories with her – the stories of failure, shame, and accomplishment. She will know she’s not alone in that wilderness.
This is who I am.
This is where I am from.
This is my mess.
This is what it means to belong to myself.
