“The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.”
In many ways... you can describe how I got from here to there... how I've learned from my mistakes... how I made myself at home with my pony friends... and how I had this opportunity to be what I wanted to be.
But no words can explain the love, compassion, and friendship I had over the past three years.
There's so many I can think about and thank them right now for following me on this journey...
To the Bronies that keep the spirit [of MLP:FiM] going, following along and learning to love and tolerate... my friends Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity for sticking on my back during this experience... the Cutie Mark Crusaders for continuing to learn and explore the world around them... Spike for helping me with all the little and big things in and around Equestria... to my family that has supported me all my life... and others that I couldn't fit into this page... I hope you'll understand.
But most of all, I'd like to thank Princess Celestia for guiding me along this path towards where I am now. You helped me understand that magic isn't the only thing that can power me... it's friendship that can do it, just by being able to harmonize yourself around other ponies and making friends. You are a true inspiration to my life, and I cannot stress that enough.
Love, gratitude, and respect,
[Princess] Twilight Sparkle.
