Looking back at the selection of 3-8-2019, no matter how inspiring it once was and still is, I now can see how I have changed. How I once was strong yet breakable. Now, though fragile, I am unbreakable. No longer afraid of the dark, because the light is shining within me.

Thus, I made an adjustment, for if I am ever confused again:
