I want to wish you something more than luck as you start this new chapter of your life. I want to wish you to continue to be driven to discover the gift of yourself. You are an amazingly authentic being and if everyone in the world could have a desire to know who they truly are, as you do, I believe the world would be a better place.
When having your “whole life in front of you” feels too overwhelming – get giddy about having the whole next moment in front of you – and embrace THAT.
We are radicals, you and I. You and I with our crazy notions that the only thing that will give us lasting happiness is to keep uncovering our true selves – and come hell or high water – learning to align ourselves with our true nature even when that means facing our deepest fears and darkest secrets. Courage is not just a word we see attached to inspiring quotes that scroll down our newsfeed.
I am a better person because of you, your spirit, your heart – and because you saw something in me that I think I may have lost a little faith in, and for that I am forever grateful.
So, let’s continue to lift one another up along our journeys. To listen and to be honest.
I am SO VERY PROUD of you and am applauding on my feet as you walk into this new chapter of your life, head held high and with an amazing tan. 🙂 We will miss you here in ol’ South Cakalaki – but as you keep reminding me, “you are only a Skype away.”
p.s. I still think you should take a year off. #365things
