Wow. June 3, 1998 was the day that I underwent my first lengthening. Fifteen years ago. At the time I couldn’t wait to be looking back on it all. Now, holy shit has time flown.
One thing is for sure, I wouldn’t change a thing. Over the past fifteen years I have learned more than I ever could have imagined. Things you would never learn in school or at work.
What, you ask? Well for starters, I learned who I really am and that it is a lifelong journey of discovery. But every surgery that I have gone through, to this day, has helped me peel back the layers and reveal me.
Dare to be different because different is beautiful.
“When you compare yourself or compete with others, you are buying into a specific set of standards, you accept those standards as desirable and valid and thus allow that criteria — those rules — to define you and dictate your life. Problem is, those rules were created to serve someone else.”
Go out there and be YOU.
