30 years today. And I always thought life would be downhill after reaching an age like 27. Now I know many things just gets less bad. The opinion from myself, the opinions from others, the fear of missing out, feelings of guilt or shame. There are so many details that don’t make a difference, yet cast shadows larger than the light they let in. What matters instead are the very few things the heart really feels. The people around me and the people back home who are part of me. They all give comfort, confidence and courage. This ride only gets better and better.
