I don’t know anyone who has more fun than you. You truly enjoy everything – from spending an evening at home to traveling all over the world. It’s infectious and exhilarating. From the day I met you, you always found a way to make me enjoy the details and the little moments. You always remind me to find the love in the details.
I have no idea why we are friends. My planning, cautious, and overthinking ass is often too stressed and anxious to get along with someone as free and fun as you. When I told you I wanted to pursue my dream, you believed me. You believed me because of my planning, cautiousness, and thoughtfulness. You forced me to take my first step – despite the details I thought I missed.
I often forget about myself in the midst of the details. In the crossroads of life, I often choose everything else, but me. Not you though. When I am around you, I remember the importance of my happiness, even when life makes it appear to be a minor detail. In every moment I have known you; you live loving yourself in the best way. I find that you do it so effortlessly and so beautifully.
It makes me believe that choosing myself can look like that – effortless and beautiful.
Last week, you reminded me that I often sacrifice my present day happiness for the dreams, plans, and ideas. You reminded me that my checklist was getting in the way of my joy today.
Thank you for reminding me to live in my joy, today.
A girl who lives better because of you
