I'm another year older today. That doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, I guess. But this year feels significant to me. I lost a lot. I gained more. I cried more this year than I have in all my other years combined. I laughed... a lot! I had people walk out of my life and new ones walk in. I started new projects and learned so fucking much about who I really am and what I want to stand for. I am stronger. I am wiser. But mostly, I am more grateful. This year was a wild one and today I'm giving thanks for all the love, loss, truth and magic that it brought with it. I got my ass kicked this year and found out I'm stronger and more capable than I thought I was.
