Colorado changed my life. The new experiences and the new friends showed me I can be a better version of myself. A 10 month program that was cleansing me of who I was and molding me into who my mom prayed I would become. A spiritual awakening took place, a re-birth of my former self. Did the past just stop there? No, it was still in my rear view mirror but what I had out in front of me helped me stay motivated, stay committed, stay true to a new process of life.
