I have waited a lifetime to be my friend

Since my MasterClass blew away all my expectations because it was an awesome experience, it is hard to form new expectations. I eagerly await the next step.

My hope someday, I will be able to look in a full length mirror without clothes and not cringe or feel shame. I want to love and respect and accept me from the outside in. Like the quote at the beginning of my MasterClass...I have waited a lifetime to be my friend. ~Gerri H.
