Last night I watched the movie Lady Bird. Everyone kept telling me to watch it, that the girl in the movie reminded them of me. Since I did also move from Sacramento, California to New York. But when I watched the movie, I did see myself, I saw the way I used to be. And I stand here looking at all that I have created by changing, growing, choosing right over wrong, choosing alone-ness instead of having heaps of friends who aren’t like me and don’t hold the same values. I look at that girl in the movie, and it was like watching my old life, and old self and I cannot be more grateful for what I chose to change in my life. Even though I didn’t always realize, I chose LOVE over everything else. I chose SELF love. And selflessness and willing to jump into almost any adventure that the universe has in store for me. Thank you, universe, thank you to my parents for always supporting and always being my #1’s. Thank you to my perfect sibling for being my friends. And thank you to my current friends who never fail to tell me to keep going. And to my boyfriend who is full of love and always pushing me to do things I should even when I don’t “feel like it.” Thank you to people who have inspired me and lead me to good things without even knowing it #healthymind #healthyheart and finally thank you, to myself for opening up and accepting all circumstances no matter how hard, thank you for having my own back, thank you for choosing love. I am so so grateful for all I have. And all that will come.
