6 days until departure.
The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life and make you see rainbows where you once saw rain clouds, stars when it was once completely dark. The people that make your life better by simply just being present in it, and love you for you (no strings attached!). The same people that believe so much in you, you start to believe in yourself too. The once in a lifetime kind of people.
These are my people.
Thank-you to the best of the best for encouraging me to not stop dreaming just because I had a nightmare. For helping me realize that the space between where I am now and where I want to be doesn’t have to be completely terrifying. But most of all, for making me feel safe to just let go. Let go of how I thought my life would or should be, and embrace the life that has been working its way into my reality. I am who I am because of each and every one of you and I’ll carry so many special memories with me over the next year.
Life has this funny little habit of taking the people we want closest to us and throwing them across oceans. At the very least, I promise to make some big waves! I’ll spread all our best stories across this beautiful planet and read your kind words when I miss your sweet faces.
Dear past – thank you for the memories.
Dear future – I am ready.
