Ready to write of your own happily ever after?

See that girl on the dragon?

I love her! She’s so happy and energetic, her life is one big adventure. Well, there was a time when I was NOTHING like her. Instead of flying high, I would get panic attacks and bang my head against the wall, not knowing how to fix myself. I would drive my boyfriend crazy asking him for reassurance. I would feel like a total failure.

Then, I discovered a simple truth: I’m the only person able to change my own story. I learned how to be my own princess and my own knight. Found the tools to deal with the monsters. Discovered my quest and made life an adventure. And now? Now, that girl on the dragon is me!
