I’ve made plenty of mistakes in my life, actually I’ve made more than my fair share, but I’ve learned and grown from those experiences. Those life lessons that broke me down, pushed me back, made me cry, burned me to the core; have helped me become a strong independent young woman. 

Lessons such as: what people to associate with, how much time I should be studying, drinking enough water, asking for help when I need it, talking to people and so many more. I learned recently that I matter, that I’m not just a nobody. I’m somebody, and I’m the center of Megan’s universe, so I got to at least be some what important (I rule an entire Megan universe) I learned that I can hate my body as much as I want, but it’s my body and it’s mine. Uniquely mine. I learned I should just eat to be happy and healthy, that nobody really cares that much if I’m a size 3 or 5, or 7. I’m learning things like boys aren’t everything, that working hard to be happy, and changing the world for the better is way more important than changing my relationship status. I learned that I shouldn’t let my anger get the best of me. I learned people are people, and one opinion shouldn’t stop me from being me. 

But I also learned that. 

I’m me. 

I’m part of this world as much as anybody else and shame on me for sulking around thinking the world is against me. Shame on me for blaming somebody or something g else for my problems. because around 99.99% of the world doesn’t even know I exist. The majority of the world doesn’t care that my knees hurt, or that I think wheelchairs are so stupid and heavy and bulky. 

But in my corner of the world. 

I’m turning heads, and making friends. 

I’m shaking hands with my dreams. 

I’m having dinner with my goals and brunch tomorrow with my ambitions. 

The new year is fast approaching and I don’t plan on changing or morphing myself, I plan on growing, educating, innovating, and making myself better.
