Always Wanted to Be Print 8x10

This started as a card, but developed into a print. I feel really good about this piece because there within it, is a great message.

Have you been there? You know the place where things are going on that you are not aware of? Or things that you know are going on, but you can't face? And when you gather the strength, or find out the "suprise", you hurt like you never hurt before. And you think you'll never get past that pain. But then time has a way of figuring it all out. And when it does, you realize the girl you were, wasn't really you. It was you, minus love and strength. And what you thought was going to devastate you, turned out to be the thing that saved you?

I've been there. And while I'd never step back to that pain, I wouldn't change the history that made me what I am right now. Because I like this girl that I am.

It's who I always wanted to be.

Jenn, That is a beautiful piece and the message and how you described the feelins is so profound. Very powerful and makes me reflect on my own experiences...and yes, I have been there, too. And through it all... the bumps in the road and the twists and turns, it made me who I am today. I am still working on me, but i like the direction I am going and am look forward to my never ending journey.
Thanks for that lovely message,
XoXo, Suzi
