To the Person I Never Thought I'd Meet,
Where did you even come from? In a blink of an eye, you stood right in front of me and I didn't even see you coming.
Thank you for saving my life. Thank you for always being there for me and all the cheesy popcorn things I can continue to say.
Before you, I always thought to myself I could be content being with where I was. And to be completely honest, I really was. To be even more honest, you made me realize that I can be more than just content, but to be truly happy. You took a risk in putting yourself out on a limb, and I took the risk in meeting you off that limb, and I'm so happy I did.
I know you cried about things you thought you had no control over and you played the comparison game for as long as I can remember, but I'm here to tell you that the only comparison worth shedding light on is between you and me. I'm here to tell you that it doesn't get easier, but it gets better. Life gets so much better. So just hang in there. Let time pass and let time heal.
You've got it played out just fine. Stay on course. Or don't stay on course. You're doing just fine.
"...It doesn't get easier, but it gets better. Life gets so much better."
As the title of this blog post reads, this was a letter to past me. The person I once was and remember so clearly. I wrote this because this week I turn the grand age of 32.
Although it is not an old age (even though there are times I feel like a grandma in my pajamas and ready for bed at about sunset), I do recognize that I am no longer in my early 20's. I can't even say I'm a 20-something. And yes, I haven't been able to say that for the past two years anyway, haha. It still feels a bit unreal.
In the past 12 years, things in life have been a bit of a roller coaster with family, friends, careers, and relationships.
I've made amazing friendships that I know are going to last me a lifetime while others--I know, will not. And that's okay. I've reconnected with people from my past who have not only been such amazing clients, but also I've learned that they've become such great sources of light into my life.
I've switched jobs so many times, I've lost count. Yet my business has never been so clear as it is right now. As always there is room for improvement, but I can honestly say it's headed to such a good place.
I cannot be happier with all that is around me. It's amazing where life takes you and where it continues to take me. I can't speak for the future, but I can speak on behalf of the past and where I stand today.
And today, as I close in on my 31st year of life, I can (with a smile on my face) say...Life is good.
I am a...
