I wake up crying and feeling very lost on most days; I spend a lot of time just sitting and wondering how the heck I even got to this point and why I’m even writing this book. It makes me feel vulnerable and lost but I keep imagining me, at the end of 2015, when I write the final sentence on the book and how much I’ll have evolved, and this inspires me to keep...
