It was also inspired by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher because I found this post of hers about their romance, and how she would never have thought when they were filming "That's 70 Show" that he would be the love of her life. Plus, he says all kinds of sweet things about her, too. It all came together in my head about dreams and missed chances.(less)

L.J. Evans Writing about people who live life resiliently is what I love to do. But it's hard in the real world to accept ourselves for all our visible and invisible scars. I hope you find a way to love yourself a little better today.
