This Was The Year
This was the year I didn’t see coming—� the one that shook me out of complacency. When I learned to stop being compliant, to demand what was rightfully mine, refuse to settle for anything less than what I deserved.
I lost patience with small talk, fell in love with midnight conversations. I crossed deserts and oceans with the man I love at my side, as we loved out of suitcases, drunk on life and laughter.
This was the year that came with a gentle tap on the shoulder, reminding me who I was and what I could be, if only I’d just open my arms and let the light in, stop over-thinking and start living. Give myself permission to fall as long as I got back up again.
I held the one’s I love, closer—� let go of the things that weren’t meant to be mine. Looked my past dead in the eye and said, you aren’t welcome here anymore. Chased away the cobwebs that I had let linger far too long. Told the moon I was sorry—this is now my time in the sun. -langleav #keepgoing
