150918 “happy birthday” you’d say as the clock strikes twelve. i do wonder at times, have i lived life enough to make these twenty six years count?
for a good quarter of my life, i did. and i can never thank you enough for showing me how big the world is. i really am a lucky girl despite what everyone says.
and on this day, as i celebrate with close friends and people dear to me, i remember you still.
time that has passed quickly turned into miles between us, it all became a surreal blur. however i run, it will never change the fact that i will forever carry a piece of you within me. i grew up with you and you taught me everything you loved which eventually became my own. and i do my best each day to not look back because i am at a happier place now.
so thank you, for being my best friend, my mentor, my travel companion and my person. here’s to finding that happiness on my own two feet this time, and i wish the same for you. and maybe, just maybe, one day, if we our paths cross again, i hope we would be able to nod and smile from across our tables having found peace and happiness in our own lives.
