Unsolicited advice from my 30year old self: Make more life—changing events, I tell myself.
If that means more heartbreak
Or uprooting myself
Or changing the world
Or a person’s life
I always ask, why am I doing it?
I have worked on myself, and I demand that those who want to be in my life are willing to do the same.
Work on your damn self
Your issues, your fears, your insecurities
Your goals, your dreams, work on it.
I went and met people. Talked to strangers.
Fell in love along the way, a few times actually.
My unsolicited advice, whether you are single or taken, or lost
Go and have an adventure!
This year, I came face to face with grief.
There is nothing more painful than seeing the one I love die in front of me.
The loss is inexplicable, it carved a tiny piece of my heart and soul,
Crushed it into dust so I may never recover it.
Grief comes in waves, whether I am ready or not.
It changed me.
I crawled myself out of the pit, I have not lived 30 years of my life to not be ready for this.
I wasn’t ready, but I crawled.
I came to understand grief with love.
The love you have for yourself, and the love others pour into you will not fill in the hole
Anger only fuels the pain. But love? Love will help you live with it.
Frankly, that’s the only option you have.
Live with it.
Age is just a number. Reaching 30, does not guarantee you anything. Take your time, use it wisely.
Love, love whenever you can.
Live, live for moments that can take your breath away.
Everything else is a waste of your existence. ❤️. .
