You bled into my life relentlessly.
How does one find the will to rise each morning amidst the brokeness of the world weighing down our shoulders?
How easy is it for us to hide from human emotions
from behind a screen.
We’ve never been more uncomfortable
allowing ourselves to feel in the way
we were created to feel.
-denying our humanity
Goodbye cold weather and snow. Goodbye grade schools and middle schools and high schools and college. Goodbye to my first kiss and my first heartbreak. My first job and new friends and old friends.
Goodbye to good memories, and painful ones.
Goodbye to my family, and all their perfect imperfections that make them whole.
Goodbye to worry and stress.
A final goodbye to my old, murky, small pond. I have outgrown your waters and your sediment.
I am craving for open water.
Hello sunshine. Hello warmth and positivity. Hello feeling fresh, new, and shiny again.
Hello to new places to explore, new friends to meet, new experiences to be lived and loved.
Hello to independence and maturity. Hello to growth, introspection, and self-discovery.
Hello to finding myself again and falling in love with the person I am supposed to be.
Hello to living, and living unconditionally.
Hello Miami. I am ready to breathe you in.
