Why I wrote this: It was autumn in the States, one of the more beautiful, evident showcases of nature. I sat down my couch and had a good re-thinking of things that happened in the past, and I realized the good in change. Each season offers new beginnings and endings. Some, a long and steady relationship. Others, a short, blithe encounter. There’s always a struggle; like when winter cowers away from the warmth of the sun, or the plants starts pushing the buds out of the stem-ends. But the result is always lovely. Trust your journey. Brave your seasons. It won’t last long.

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.
