Today I am 32.
Today is a day to reflect and celebrate the journey —
the twists and turns,
the moments of love and beauty,
and the friends I’ve made along the way.
I have gotten back in touch with my desire to do good in this world and have decided that what I have today is enough.
I’m getting a tiny bit better at being here.
I am grateful for my life and especially for this past year — full of change and growth and pain.
I’ve made it to the other side and sometimes I am truly happy with the result.
I’ll remember what a hard and beautiful year 31 was.
It’s worth taking a leap and getting hurt.
You can always dust yourself off and give it another go.
Life goes on (or not), but we might as well try while we’re here.
