A letter to the Adventure

July 6, 2017

 

My dearest Adventure,

 

            We’ve been together a long time. Good times and bad times. And I know I was distant toward the end and said some hurtful things about you. About how much I wanted to leave and that I wasn’t feeling it anymore. But the truth is, I miss you. And while we can’t go back to the way things were, I want to say thank you for everything. You’ve truly changed my life.

 

            When we met, you were a bit of a mess. It was a struggle to get to know you when you were in such disarray. But after some time, I started to see how beautiful you are. You were welcoming and really became somewhere I felt comfortable. You were home. And that’s when I started to fall in love.

 

            Every day you were showing me things that took me by surprise. You disconnected me from the life I had before and connected me to what I now cherish so completely. You reminded me of how much I love my work and allowed me to take time for myself. You took me to beautiful islands and led me to incredible people.

 

            There were also the not-so-good moments. You tested me as, little by little, I felt parts of you leaving. Parts that made me love you so much in the beginning were now gone. You made me feel alone and I questioned why I loved you in the first place. You tested my health, you worked me to the bone, you introduced me to toxic people and unhealthy thoughts about my body and my career. There were times when I hated you.

 

            But we made it through and I’m glad we stuck it out. You gave me even more beautiful people in those last few months and unforeseeable, magical experiences that have shaken me to the core. And it was all worth it in the end. You gave those moments to me and I’m so lucky to have them because of you.

 

            So, even though we couldn’t last forever and I must move on, I want to send my sincerest thank you. Getting to know you has been the best experience of my life so far. I will not forget.

 

All my love x
