It’s official. I’m one of those people who claim my born day as my personal New Year. January 1st, Imma let you finish but…
My day consisted of roaming the streets of Chiang Mai, Thailand for hours. Stumbling in and out of temples I swore I wouldn’t frequent. A nap that turned into full blown sleep. Thunder I could feel in my bones. And delicious cocktails accompanying meals almost identical to cup noodles.
It was interesting to say the least, and you still can’t tell me my pan fried noodles didn’t come out of a styrofoam cup, but I digress.
This year has been whirlwind of all the feels and way more highs than lows, but the lows were still there. I never want anyone to think I don’t have bad days because bad WEEKS are inevitable. It all depends on how you deal with it.
This past year I went places I’d never imagined, never desired to visit, and some I’d only dreamed of making it to. For me, traveling is inevitable and a non-negotiable. It would’ve happened anyway, but I made sure it happened more. If you love something, you’ll do everything in your power to make it happen, or so I thought. I can’t be one of those humans sitting around and watching other people live my life. If I want something, I go after it. It’ll take a hell of a lot for me to sit back and accept a “no” from a human or the universe.
The last year has brought some amazing people into my life who I can confidently say I expect to be around forever and it has allowed me to transition others into my past. All in all, it was lit!
Not to conclude this without mentioning astrology and the stars and the moon and blah, blah blah, but today is literally the luckiest day of the year. Enjoy your September 26th and I’ll enjoy this next full year. Here’s to way more highs than lows, health, wealth, and happiness.
