When I was a child I was told: "Megan, you can do anything you put your mind to."

Something heavier, something less colorful and more muted, something that sucks the wonder and imagination and excitement from things. Call it what you will: depression, reality, pessimism, cynicism. This past November, I hit rock bottom.

This is part of an attempt at healing, at hope, at remembering that optimism. At doing something worth doing. At remembering what it's like to live.

You are more to me than just what you buy.
Your narrative matters.
