Today, it’s been about a year since I first sat beside a mother and her special needs daughter on the train into downtown. I our first trip together the daughter asked asked me my name three times. I answered her all three times, and just figured that she would soon forget it and ask me again, but she never did.

Today, I am thankful for having a nervous breakdown at 15 and the lesson I learned from it. I thought I had to be perfect back then. I hated myself every day, and I didn't care to be happy. After years of therapy and medicine, I appreciate the little things in life now, and my day is easily made. The special needs worker in my college dining hall told me I have a great smile today; that's enough to make me wanna smile. MMT.
