This space has been lacking lately and for that I apologize. I’m hoping that in the new year, I will be able to catch up on all the friendships, feelings, trips, weddings, plans, stories, laughs, and days that I have been experiencing. Until then… the iphone glimpse is all I can give.
I fall in love everyday.
Brains and hearts often diverge and unmade decisions tend to make themselves.
We measure our regrets in years and call it life.
This is mine.
Suddenly, her whole life made sense.
There are almost 7 billion people in this world.
There is a 1 out of 6,935,525,643 chance of you and I.
My grandparents are pushing 90. I went to visit them yesterday because I love them, and they are my grandparents and that is what you do when you have grandparents you love, you visit them.
Less than 3 minutes after I walk in the door:
Grandpa: You still got that diamond in your nose?
Me: Looks like it.
Grandpa: Hmmm. Might as well-it’s probably the only diamond you’ll ever get.
I walk into the kitchen and find a jar stuffed with paper in it. Naturally, I open it and start pulling out these slips of paper. My aunt had typed up 365 memories about her parents (my grandparents) and put them in this jar for my grandparents to pull out and read each day:
This is my life.
You words didn’t stop in my heart. They keep moving through my everyday into every person I am in contact with.
Even though we are growing up and slowly realizing that saying what you feel doesn’t always mean getting what you want. I believe that it does help to see yourself more clearly-and ultimately, i think that’s more beneficial than anything we could ever want. I think.
Just remember, it’s the simple and small words that can change and turn our lives in different directions. Maybe not right-maybe not wrong, but different. I like that. Because even though your mom told you not to, sometimes I think it’s okay-not all the time. But this time.
It’s okay to beg.
Thank you Angela.
Then we could live like this every single day.
