A recent photo of me at fifty-seven years old reminded me of one from when I was nine. So I merged them to remind myself during these increasingly trying times of that strong, limitless little girl inside (I had already survived something very big at that point). There’s an absolutely unbreakable child inside you, as well, even if some days push you to the edge. Hang in there.
If you need to be reminded of him or her, the whole first chapter of my book is a series of memories from childhood that readers have said has awakened their memories as well.
