Why I wrote this: Circumstances won’t always allow you to be on your feet, but you can always choose to slowly inch yourself high when your knees fall flat to the ground. There might be some bad days, but don’t forget: you always have options. Always. You can get out of the situation, or face it according to what your heart tells you to. Change things around by choosing to be brave. You’ll never know; miracles might happen when you do.

30 Things Before 30 is a collection of texts and stories to remind me of a beautiful 3-decade existence, and to propel me to pursue much more beautiful, future years.
