Someone told me recently that I should appreciate my past selves. But I’m different from those people because I’m better than them—I have to be, to keep pushing through this world and surviving challenges that would have destroyed me before. I appreciate what my past selves went through, but they’re also the only people in existence I know I’m better than.
As I move into 2018, I’m thinking about how to be the best version of myself. I’ve got a plan, I’ve got hopes, and I’ve got this playlist. Happy New Year.
