As another year approaches I hope you are able to look back on 2017 and take the sprinkles of glitter that came with it...
It cracks you wide open and your heart stops beating but it does not destroy you. And that your courage to push on regardless of the tremendous strain weighing heavily on your heart is fucking oscar worthy.
That it's the feeling of a door closing on someone not worth your time or energy or with the emotional capacity of a watermelon. And that sometimes, things fall apart so better things can fall together.
And that the world went quiet when it snuck up on you.
And that your weird and colourful self feels incredibly free because of it.
And that this is not a reflection of you but rather, a proclamation of where they are in their own journey.
To create healthy boundaries that absolutely include skipping the gym in favour of an extra hour in bed with your dog.
Because the world needs a little more authenticity and a little less Kim Kardashian.
And that life is too short to be something you're not.
Because how do you ever really close a door that was never open?
And you're a hero for getting up to do it all over again after the days that it blew.
And that this isn't some annoying meme found in a cheap fortune cookie; it's the Universe's way of telling you that what you're putting out into the world is what you're getting back. So what are you going to do about it?
And to see challenge as an opportunity for growth.
And that miles of ocean won't change the fact.
And we didn't come into this world as an adult for a reason.
It's a journey to another part of yourself.
And that you are so much more than that destructive chatterbox inside your head.
THANK YOU for all of your support this past year... You rock <3
