ONE YEAR IN SEATTLE
JANUARY 13 2016
Yesterday marked my one year anniversary in Seattle.
It was a bit of a rough day. On top of personal dramas, David Bowie passed and I hadn’t spoken to my mother in a week. The rain came back.
The past year was full of astronomical highs and face-down-in-the dirt lows and so so so much life. So much more life than I feel I’ve lived in the years previous. Maybe change always feels that way and I’ve never noticed because I’ve never allowed myself perspective. I suppose that’s part of what growth is. Recognizing change, letting it become you, and learning from it.
One year in, and I’m still desperately in love with this town. I’m in love with love, with happiness, with heartbreak, coffee, alcohol, with letting your freak flag fly… I love the person I am here. Finally, I’m learning to love me.
I can’t wait to see what happens next.
