This is a message for all the sweet, darling people in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, soul and mind.
To you, my family. You try to be patient with what some would say are whims. I know I change my mind. A lot. I know I may not see the world as you see it and I’m grateful that we don’t see each other as glitches in our family system- maybe just little blimps or eccentricity that drive each other crazy from time to time. I am so lucky to be able to say that my sisters are my first best friends. We are so very different, but there’s a love here that is unmistakable and will last a lifetime.
Little Miss M., you have helped 2016 be just a little more entertaining :). We haven’t known each other very long, but it sometimes seems like I’ve known you my whole life. You are so much fun and your free spirit has helped my own fly just a little more. I found my inner fun-music-freak again and it is all thanks to you. You reminded me of what it feels like to dance. Besides all that, we share a project that keeps bringing us closer and I want to thank you for the opportunity of not only being your friend, but your business partner. You are very dear to my heart and I’m grateful for your friendship and all your wonderful support.
To my lovely distraction, D. I have known you for the shortest time, but you’ve helped me weather some pretty dark moments and you probably don’t even know it. I hope you find your real worth and maybe I’ll be able to be a little source of that. I hope to keep challenging your viewpoints to the point I drive you crazy and I hope you continue to do the same for me :). I’m glad to know a person that reads music the same way I do and I’m grateful for your very refreshingly bossy and argumentative presence in my life. Even if you don’t want the world to see it, I do see your heart.
My darling N., we’ve already deducted that we were crappy friends to each other last year. I don’t really see it that way. We’ve both been busy as heck, working on our lives, living a good way away from each other. But I’m always here for you and you know I’m always sending you soooo much light and love. You are wise, you don’t judge and you always have just the question to ask and make me think and think again. You have been and are invaluable to my life. I hope you know how much I appreciate and respect you and the strong person you have become. I am in awe of your work ethic and your compassion and empathy. Plus, you have chosen someone equally as awesome to share your life with: K., you are one of the classiest people I know. Your poise and proficiency in all things to do with life, inspire me to do just a little better. I love you.
B., you, alongside N. and K. form my Disco Galz. I haven’t had the opportunity to spend nearly as much time with you as I would have liked, but I want to you to know that you have a spark to you that is unmistakable and uniquely you. You make me laugh just by looking at me and that’s simply wonderful.
My darling S., we’ve been in each other’s lives for so long. You’re funny, dangerously quick to make an opinion and free of spirit to the point it scares me :). We’ve both come such a long way and even if we don’t speak for a long while, it’s always completely natural with us. No matter where your head-space is, I want you to know, I won’t judge and I’ll always have your back.
A., we live very different lives and have very different viewpoints on life, but we share a mutual respect and love. You have such a kind heart and I hope to help you be the light you need to be for yourself. I want you to know it’s never too late. Never, ever. You are worth of all the beauties this world has to give. You and your wonderful family members are unmistakable highlights of my life.
K., you’re always here (if I need you or not :D), you’re always hungry and you always talk computer stuff and it’s annoying, but I wouldn’t give you up for the world. You’re easy going, funny and a part of my family. We have great love for the same band and their concerts aren’t the same without you. It’s epic how crazy you are and the stories you tell are hilarious to the point my stomach hurts. Just don’t go anywhere, O.K.?
Last, but certainly and in no way least. To you, my sweet S.. You are my rock. We’ve grown up together and our bond is something special. It always will be. You are literally the smartest person I know (and I hang around pretty smart people), you have the kindest heart and an open mind. No matter where life takes us and what paths we choose to walk down, you’ll always be cellular to me. Always. I am and will always be here for you.
I believe every person has a place in our lives that brings meaning. This is why I’d like to thank people I have known and have grown apart with, those who are here now and also those who have yet come into my life. I am so grateful to have such majestic lights illuminate my life.
