Annnnnnnnd she’s back. This has taken me sometime to write, partly due to time and partly because I had no idea what to say. I am still unsure of what to say and how to say it but 2015 is supposed to be the ‘year of no fear’. So I am dedicating this first piece to my three best friends who have helped me in more ways then they know. – SIDENOTE: The significance of the number three can be found in an earlier post.
1. Joseph – thankful for inspiring me and encouraging me to start writing again. Thank you for deciphering my rant texts and giving the best advice that you can. Thank you for making me laugh when I just want to cry. You have stuck by my side through all these crazy college years when I am finding myself and who I am and for that I am forever grateful. You are the sweetest and I am so happy you’re happy.
2. Arielle – my coco diva, you know something is up with just a look. You are the greatest sisterfriend that I could ever ask for. No matter what shit we have going on you are there for me when I need you the most and I am beyond blessed to have you in my life. Your positive demeanor and go-gett’em attitude inspires me to pursue life with the greatest of passion and love. Thank you for showing me what chasing your dreams with love looks like.
3. Colton – scruffy wuffy babybear, I love you so much. You are patience in so many ways that I am not. You look at the world through eyes of compassion and care and share my desire to create a better world. It is amazing to me that you are willing to stand and fight to break down my walls while most would walk away. You have a beautiful soul and a young heart. I can’t wait to put the 1600+ miles aside and change the world with you.
Thank you for loving me. I realize that to each of you I am frustrating in my own unique way. Thank you for sticking by my side and showing me that I am worth loving.
I am not sure where the rest of this year will take us but in this moment and always, I am grateful for you.
From this moment forward, I choose to do something greater, with purpose, with meaning, outside of myself, every day and I challenge you to do the same.
