If we run into each other down the road, we will never be able to recreate this experience – this moment in this season with these people.
As my boy John Lennon said himself: Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans, baby! And I think he was onto something.
I have never felt so free to just be whoever that happened to be – even if it isn’t as great as I was expecting.
Every one of us makes a difference every day. It is up to us to determine what that impact looks like.
I had my toolbox: My Ativan, my Gravol, my best friend, and my wine (it was 10am).
My day-to-day is essentially the same as it was when I was 15, wearing spindly glasses and high ponytails. Only this time, my glasses are cool and my hair’s in a bun. And this time, I’m working in New Zealand.
