In less than an hour I get to put another year to bed. What luck, what fortune, befalls those of us lucky enough to see another year. I'm so grateful to be able to celebrate the passing of time. Not everyone is so lucky. Great writers whose words cut me to the bone with their beauty have reminded me of this. The tragedy of life cut short. The gift of aging. Wouldn't it be beautiful if "aging" became synonymous with "blessing?" With luck. With grace. With the notion of a gift? I like myself better than I did a decade ago. I want that for everyone. The years. The gift of adding chapters to the book that makes up a life.
34, you've been good to me. Terrible to me. You've tested every ounce of my bravery & gumption. You've brought me to my knees in pain. You've shown me joy I never knew I could experience. You've made me laugh so hard that I've cried & lost my breath. You've given me clarity. You've revealed my power to me. I'm learning to own it, I am. To be in a place that feels this good, this real, and this hard earned? My chest aches in gratitude. I am exactly where I'm meant to be. And as I look back, at the last 10 years even, and back at the me I used to be I can't help but be overcome with grace, for her then, and for this me now.
Heart? I'm doing my best to honor you and lead with you. Body? It hasn't always been easy for us but I am learning to love you & see beauty in what you are (and cast off notions of what you "should be." Fuck that). Mind? I'm so damn grateful for your capacity for complex thought and your empathetic core. When I look at how these and all my other parts add up? Well damn. It certainly ain't perfect. But it's mine. And it's taken work and struggle and love and loss and a whole bunch of other shit that's mine alone - don't forget that Internet isn't a full scope, not even close, but it IS important for us all to make it more vulnerable & more kind - and here I am. Stepping forward into another year. Stepping closer to home. That's
