In the middle of a panic attack, my cousin asked me, “Are you willing to change?” Crying, I said, “I guess?” She told me to say it myself. “Ok, I’m willing to change.”

I felt a chill through my body and a little bit of relief. I kept saying, “I’m willing to change,” each time I had a hard moment (which was quite frequent during that time).

Little by little, I did start to change. New teachers, books, friends, opportunities, practices, and tools began to appear in my life. From what felt like a very dark place, one small step at a time, a beautiful bright dream world began to take form around me.
