We all do it, you know. Distract ourselves from noticing how time is passing. We throw ourselves into our jobs. We focus on keeping the blight off our tomato plants. We fill up our gas tanks and top our credit cards and do the grocery shopping so that the weeks look the same on the surface. And then, one day, you turn around (
and you’re nearly thirty). One day you realise that there is less of your life left than what you’ve already lived. And you think ‘how did that happen so fast?’ When this realisation hits, you start doing the math. How much time do I have left? How much can I fit into that small space? Some of us let that realisation guide us, we book trips to Bali ‘to find ourselves’, we learn how to sculpt, we skydive. But some of us just just continue to fill up our gas tanks and top off our credit cards and do the grocery shopping because if you only see the patch thats right ahead of you, you dont obsess over when the cliff might drop off. Some of us never learn. And some of us learn earlier than others. A massive thanks to everyone who has carried me through this year. Happy 27th to me. Here’s to another year of learning, creating, loving, healing, and growing.
