I am reclaiming my life, bit by bit and piece by piece. I got lost somewhere, went off track and found myself in a place that I didn’t want to be in and turned into someone I didn’t like and couldn’t be. I was living in the shadows of the past and the fantasies of the future. Now, with the help of many things, including this Manifesto, I’m living in the present. I’m doing what I love: writing, reading and learning. I may never be able to turn these things into a paid career but, you know, that doesn’t matter. It’s enough I’m that doing them every day. It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey and I’m so lucky I got a second shot at this. I am doing what I love and doing it often, who can ask for more?
