I want to be a novelist, a poet, and artist. I want to lose weight and get in shape. I want to build long-lasting friendships. I want to get married and have a joyous, loving, laughter filled relationship with my husband. I want to get to a point where my mental illness no longer hampers my life to the extreme. I want a lot of things and I want them now. But I am willing to wait. I am willing to put in the work to get what I want from life.
