This past year was filled to the brim with growth. The uncomfortable kind, like ripping off a bandaid or undergoing open heart surgery. I went through periods of loneliness and lack of focus and direction and motivation that I had never experienced before. Thirty four hurt me, it knocked me down and at one point I thought about starting fresh, maybe moving across the world, deleting my online presence and working in a cafe along the European countryside. Why not, right?
But that would be neglecting the other side of the coin. The acceptance I found in knowing it’s okay to not have everything figured out. The pieces of the planet that I, a little girl growing up in New Jersey, never could have imagined I would be able to experience. And, of course, the humans that stood by my side every step of the way.
And so, it is with nothing but gratitude that I thank and say goodbye to thirty four. #sothisisthirtyfive
