“Everything you've ever wanted is still waiting for you. You have not lost your chance, your potential has not waned, your truth has not diminished — even if you have kept it in hiding. All you lost was one particular chance to make it manifest. There will be an infinity more. You have not lost anything just because you lost one particular moment in time. You still contain everything you've ever wished to become.”
