This past weekend I turned 28 - I feel just as non-adult as last year and almost felt a panic at not feeling like “I have my shit together” but beyond all that nonsense, I am so grateful to a) work with, and be inspired by my friends and coworkers and partners on a daily basis b) have true friendships that are withstanding time and distance apart. This is my best friend Stephanie and I was so fortunate to see her in Seattle as she was coincidentally there at the same time. Even if I never “feel” put together, I take comfort in knowing I am constantly challenged, and made better by the people I have surrounded myself with. Every time I question my own perspective or kindness or motive on anything in life, even if and when I fail, I know my friends will be there to guide me to be better because of it. Today I live to be a better person than I was yesterday - this is my yearly motto and even if next year I’m just as not-put-together as this year, I trust I’ll be fine with the people beside me.
