Morgan: Honestly working on it, when it’s good. I’m meditating daily, working out, on top of my diet. I do keep a journal.

And just that day/night to myself does all the good in the world.

Morgan: If there is something you want to do that doesn’t involve living where you live. And no one around you gets it, supports or understands… just leave. It’s terrifying, but I promise the other side of it is beautiful if you don’t stop.
