My name is Hannah, and I believe in doubt.
I believe that the best way to learn about yourself,
And who you want to be,
Is to ask questions
And never settle for anything less.
I believe in wanting to know the truth,
And in taking all paths to get there.
I believe in questioning what others want you to believe
In finding what you feel in your heart
And in your mind
To be perfect for whom you are
(At least in this moment).
I believe in changing,
And that the fact that we are dynamic
Should encourage us
To seek new practices
To find many friends
To reach out and touch the world around us.
I believe in doubt.
I believe in questions.
I believe in growth, and change, and the never-ending pursuit of happiness.
