My absence has surely not gone unnoticed and I cannot deny that I partly just forgot about this. I am sorry.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home and a strange into a friend.”
Since August this year my life as been full of blessings. It all just went uphill. I was so struck by it all that I could not be grateful enough about it. I felt so lucky it made me unsure wether I deserved all this luck.
Since then months have passed, Christmas is here in less than a month, my final exams less than two and soon I will just be another bird leaving its nest. Breathe. Just breathe.
Would someone have told me a year ago from then we would be spending almost every weekend together cruising around the streets, influencing each others bad eating habits and laughing at the weirdest little shenanigans, making heads turn wherever we go – because you just cannot take us anywhere – I would have not believed you.
Now a year later that is exactly what we are doing. And I love every part about it! From our Friday coffee talks to our Sunday anger release sessions, I love it all.
I love that you guys are so very different from each other and still so similar! I literally have best of both worlds. You guys not only inspire me to live my live at its fullest but you have taught me in a way to be more grateful.
Thank you for showing me how to be myself again. Thank you for laughing with me – about my bad eating habits for example. I truly am the clumsiest when it comes to food. But Thank You. You guys have helped me overcome a time in my life I do not like sharing with the world as it really is not as pretty as I myself like to portray it. You have helped me find a way back to myself and I could not be more grateful for this. I could go on and on but you would probably stop reading this if I did.
If someone would have told me a year ago we would the one who is always early, the one who is fashionably late and the one who takes so many detours it seems like a never ending road trip, I would have looked at you and only dreamed that something so great would be coming my.
We make a great bunch, whose stories someday I’ll capture in a book or two. But not today. Today I am just grateful. Thank you.
