I can read Sam's mind

if you're lost you can look, and you will find me

Today is my ten year live journal anniversary. TEN YEARS! I don't even know how many life experiences and major events have been chronicled here. A lot. I have been through some of my very worst and very best times. And it has been a privilege and an honor to share them with you all.

LJ has changed my life in ways that I never would have expected. I have met this amazing network of strong, smart, creative women. I've been able to ask for help when I needed it, but also to be the shoulder when someone else needed it. I've learned about myself, this country, this earth...from reading about other people's experiences.

I've traveled all over the United States. I've been to concerts and cons and people's homes. I've shaken hands with famous people and eaten in diners and frozen to death standing in lines. I've laughed and smiled more than I previously even knew was possible.

You guys have changed my life. You taught me that it's ok to be ME. You taught me about creativity and self confidence. You taught me how to think and argue and decide for myself. You helped me to see that there is beauty in every day, whether it's something big or something small. You showed me that sometimes life is very serious, but sometimes it isn't serious at all.

You showed me that I never, ever have to be alone.

LJ matters, it matters to me. The people, the ideas...they matter. The friendships, the fandom...it all matters. YOU matter. I am forever changed for having known you, and for having spent the last ten tears in this place. Thank you for being a part of my life.
