Forty five years gone. But man, feeling so blessed to have lived them as intensely and as authentically as I have.
There have been a lot of bad, even traumatic times. There have been infinitely more beautiful moments. This kid has done well for herself thus far.
My life isn’t perfect, but it’s close.
I have learned so much. And I have travelled. I have read. I have written. I have photographed. I have experienced. I have fucked up. I have succeeded. I have loved. I have been hurt. I have suffered. I have fought. I have won. I have lost. I have cried. I have screamed. I have felt.
I have laughed.
And I have laughed. And laughed some more.
This birthday is a turning point. I feel it deep into my core. I will continue learning and suffering and everything else … But I will also be creating the life I yearn to live.
I envision a business. A place people come to heal and to be whole. A safe place. A place that has a spirit that just keeps giving.
I envision peace. And tranquility. And hope. And divine happiness.
