Remembering who I was “before the world got its hands on me” just sounds like the most amazing place to be. I am not certain I know exactly where that time in my life that may have been. But I do remember times as a teenager that I had such energy, courage and dreams. I recall the short spurts of time when the highs were so high, but the lows were horribly low, too. Each time there were highs it was because I broke the rules, felt free and imagined how perfect the rest of my life could be if only the restrictions were off of me. Perhaps that was a taste of “before the world got its hands on me”.
Returning to me will be less about remembering and more about unlearning and discovering.... and this time…I will not let anyone or anything get its hands on me!
