So today (yesterday) the 17th was my birthday. And I am just realizing how amazing I have it. Getting to this point in my life has not been easy. I am living in a moment where I love myself and love the woman I have become and that is in no doubt because of the people I have surrounded myself with. My 20s have been absolutely amazing if I take the time to think about it. My 20th birthday I spent in Orlando with then complete strangers who have become my best friends. My 21st and 22nd were whirlwind excitement in my small college town and this 23rd birthday was with new friends who are slowly becoming my family. What I realize in all of this is how important it is to build a community of people you love. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love I have felt today from my family and friends and coworkers. I work and live in a place where dreams really do come true. Yes, there are things I wish I could change, people who I wish weren’t so far away, but in the grand scheme of things I am having the time of my life here where happiness comes in the form of a mouse and a little pixie dust. Mostly today has reminded me that even if I am getting older and even though I don’t like 23 because it’s a prime number…I am still a kid at heart in the most magical place on earth.
Closed Eyelids: Thankfulness
Tip of nose: Good luck
Cheek: Happy to see you
Earlobe/Neck: “I want you” , Lust, Desire
Top of hand: Respect, loyalty
Computer screen: I love you but I can’t ever have you (because you’re not real)
that last one though
Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.
