To all my friends who came to party & celebrate with me well into the night into Mary’s birthday, I love you.
To all who wished me, I love you.
To all my friends near or far, I love you.
As I type this, I am sitting on my bed under all my blankets staring at my room that’s covered in balloons, gifts & memories chuckling to myself about all the alcohol I consumed and the imagery of me walking into my home early this morning because I didn’t quite make it to stay at Bry’s
I am ready to start this next phase of my life and I’m getting serious about it. Sounds corny & cliché but things will be changing and happening this year and it’s going to be a wild ride. Changes are coming, but I’ll always still be that hippie AND hood, spirituality loving, crystal collecting, intellectual, quirky, empathetic, compassionate, intuitive, nostalgia loving, music loving, oversensitive, overthinking “feminine tomboy” nerd, loner, astrology enthusiast, music artist weirdo who wears her Vans (with literally everything) like she wears her heart on her sleeve and sits in her room everyday for hours overanalysing EVERYTHING well into the AM and just longs for a sense of peace. Who puts everyone before herself, who LOATHES the thought of following the crowd & dances to the beat of HER OWN drum, who can read everyone like a book & relishes in the fact that she’s an epitome of a walking contradiction. That will never change. Only grow greater as the trinity of my being grows daily. Only, it’s important to remember that I water it and look after me FIRST now. You should all do the same and we will be ok. I can’t stress how important it is to take care and not love other people at the expense of yourself. Don’t love others while losing yourself. You are worthy of and deserve all the love you give out. Remember that.
Thank you all again so much for all of your love and I promise to give it back, always.
I am TWENTY THREE AND FREE!
