My darling cousin sent me this quote last week (side note: the key to my heart lies in emails containing the words "this made me think of you") and I wanted to share it here as Food For Thought.
I can't tell you how many times I've been chugging along in life only aware of the next step in front of me. The past few years in particular have been a bit of a whirlwind for me; there was, admittedly, a lot of sadness and confusion to be found. I dealt out hurt to others just as I took in a fair share myself. It often felt as if I was blindly taking steps forward, trying to focus on slivers of hope when I felt brave enough to look for them. It all felt so...heavy. Each move felt humbling, embarrassing, guilt ridden or painful. But I kept taking them. One uncertain baby step at a time. Stumble. Fall. Get up. Rinse. Repeat. I kept moving forward. As my mom likes to say, I pulled myself up by my boot straps.
And eventually I looked up.
And I'd reached San Francisco.
And I am very, very happy.
Love and Light,
