happy fourth




there is always something to be said about the fourth of july for me. the past few years it has been the hallmark of rather life changing events: 2012 my then boyfriend asked me to be his, 2013 i was in the dominican republic celebrating a childhood friend's wedding (and also secretly trying to manage my overwhelming anxiety over the person i was with at the time - insert pina colada emoji here), and alas 2014 has brought me a new job. i've been a firm believer that life has a brutally funny way of giving us what we need at the time we need it - even if said thing is gut wrenching and painful. but like rumi says, sometimes we need to crack in order to let the light in. and that's exactly how i'm feeling about my life right now... full of light. excitement and gratitude are at the top of the list every morning when i wake up. 
so while i was on top of my neighbors roof, watching the fireworks solo (before going to my friend's house), i found myself with peaceful tears in my eyes thinking at the many accomplishments and hurdles overcome these past seven months. i kissed the sky, and thought: happy independence day indeed!
