This was a tough one to write mostly because being vulnerable sometimes makes the heart ache but here goes... My dearest LA, five years it's been me and you, you kick my ass, rip my soul out some days, break my heart other days, take my dreams and then give it back. Maybe I was scared to write this because there’s a part of me that hoped I would be a little further along by now but you, you remind me every single day that I am exactly where I am meant to be. You take care of my dreams in ways that I never thought possible. You make me resilient AF. You are the reason why for the first time in my life, I feel like I'm home. You make me grateful for all of it... Never in a million years did I think that picking up a camera would bring me so much joy and become my greatest creative outlet at times. Thank you for making me brave enough to do that. ily LA even when I threaten to cheat on you with NY, you're still my number one. Happy Anniversary!
I know that I quote this book a lot, like a lot but hey, how can this not resonate with the hearts of every dreamer out there? “What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we've learned as we've moved toward that dream. That's the point at which most people give up. It's the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon. Every search begins with beginners luck. And every search ends with the victors being severely tested." The Alchemist
I'm rooting for you and your dreams, don't let fear be the reason you don't run towards your legacy. xX
