“For a big part of my life I felt like a dandelion—a weed, a nuisance, a bother, an ugly spot on the lawn. But just as it was possible to reframe the value of the dandelion as a nutritious, medicinal and mystical plant, I learned that I had gifts that were uniquely my own and that I brought great value to the world … and so do you.”
