From nothing

I went from nothing two years ago to this.


"Hallie, I can't believe how far you've come," my uncle said as he looked around my apartment.


I didn't have any money. I was actually in debt. I didn't have a job or clothes. Or a place to live. I didn't have any friends nearby. I was completely broken, starting from scratch. I didn't have anything.


And now?


I have an apartment full of furniture I picked out.


Linens for guests to visit.


A fridge full of fresh produce for new recipes.


Friends and family that surround me.


A dream job.


A car. A closet full of clothes and shoes.


Love.


Times of travel and adventure.


Everything.


Now, I have everything and more.
