I've come to appreciate the time I have alone. Reflection has become precious to me, as I have come to find that I have so much to be grateful for: friends, family, trust, work, creativity, food, my own apartment, honesty, public transportation, my body, my voice, variety and people in general. It's days like this where I find myself realizing how I have grown since I moved into this apartment, and since I moved to New York. And it's days like this where I realize all the things that people say to me that are sweet lessons I don't realize in the moment. Here are just a few of those lessons, and just the ones that I can think of in this moment. I'll share them as they were worded to me. To those of you who shared these words of wisdom with me, Thank you. Your vulnerability and sincerity are the best gifts.
On Money: "You can't take it with you when you die."
On Community: "There's something amazing happening here."
On People: "It's something rare that most people don't possess and it's refreshing."
On Friendship: "Thank you for always pushing me and always seeing in me what I finally saw in myself."
On Support: "Sometimes I know what people need better than they know themselves."
On Love: "I call her my fuckercita because she's my little fucker and I love her."
On Sex: "When I'm frustrated, I just start dancing. It always helps."
Stay tuned for more blog posts. Coming soon.....apartment renovation pictures and posts.
