Life is messy. It’s a series of microwavable dinners and week old dishes. It’s heartache and tears as your apartment is invaded by creatures of the six plus leg variety. It’s sitting down on your luggage to rest after 10 hours of travel only for the wheels to slide out from under you causing you to fall unceremoniously on your butt. For a stranger in the corner to laugh till tears are coming down his face as he begs for you to do it again. It’s about spending hours obsessing and arguing over the latest Game of Thrones theory. It’s learning to find balance between putting yourself first but helping others. Life is a grand adventure filled with missteps and moments of unsurpassable joy. It’s learning to fill the void after you say goodbye and finding the peace again. This is my life.
