Every year, I am always so shocked at what I get the privilege to do and the experiences I am blessed with. 2018, while being only 2 months long so far, has been by far one of the most special times in my life.
January was slow, calm, and full of laughter. Something I wrote late one night in an emotional blur was published. Which in turn, has led to more writing opportunities, and the realization that maybe the things I write can move people and show a side of me not easily conveyed in person.
February has been full of love and sunshine. When I was in 2nd or 3rd grade I discovered that Disney had cruises and I would beg to go, and sit in bookstores reading travel guides dreaming of going. This month I did, and I got to do it with friends I want to hold on to and love for a lifetime.
March will bring even more daydreams into becoming a reality. Working on a strong and diverse mooting team, traveling across Europe competing with some of the best law students in the world and meeting so many intelligent young people. To finally getting to prance down Main Street in Disneyland Paris.
I grew up wondering when I would get to see the world, when it would finally be my time to experience life outside of Florida. It’s now. But I couldn’t be here, and I would never have made it this far without the love and support from my mom, dad, sister and grandmother. I wouldn’t be so happy that I feel the need to write this without them.
As I plan more and more dreams I can only look back with a thankful heart on my entire life and the people who have blessed me along the way. I took a break from writing here, took time to absorb the world around me and keep it sacred for just myself, but I miss you. I miss writing. I hope I am back for good.
