“I painted all the walls in my house dark. Deep dark shades that made me feel safe and protected….hidden away like a squirrel in a nest. Deep dark shades that I now realize were also a reflection of the storm that was my life. The confusion. The fear. The self-doubt. The uncertainty that hovered over every day.
But now? Now I crave color. I crave sunlight. Because now my soul is free. I can breathe. I am not afraid.”
