as i sit on my couch, walking to work, sitting in class, sitting in a room full of lovely people i find myself thinking about the good and the bad i’ve had in my life - those who have come and have gone and those who love me that have hurt me. all a memorable part of my life and who i am today and i’ve been met with so many mix emotions about some of the situations i’ve faced both good and bad that have implanted such an important moment/memory that i have to revise literally all of the time. - like i said last year : i’m actually turning 80 lol. - looking back to the last 21 years of my life is something quite nostalgic, remembering how i used to be a way and now i am another - remembering the things i used to like, things that today make me furious or get a disgust face or something like that- seen my physical changes, personality changes, just seen how much of a loved, cared, individual i have become and caring and loving back.
today, at 21 i am also very happy to be who i am and happy to see the small impacts i make in some individuals life’s or in my community but still struggle with the fact that part of this community is f*****g terrible, but yet i’m here and i will make a change ether you want it or not. today i am very happy to have a circle of individuals that love me and will support me forever - life and the steps you take are what really make it, and i feel so proud to be the artist, activist, partner, family and human i am. it has been really rewarding living the life i have - today at 21 i feel the best i have felt in a long time, feeling like i own the world and very empowered by those who surround me. self love is something i practice in many forms and this is one of them. today i encourage everyone to practice that in whatever best way works!
