"Happy" (feat. Tickle Water)
I'm currently sitting on the train and headed to my first 5 shoots of the day. It's never ending and I wouldn't have it any other way. I look out my window and hope to see the sunrise, but honestly it has been so smokey here. I don't think we'll be seeing a normal sunrise anytime soon. The fires have been a huge ray of sadness all over California. My heart breaks for all the lives lost and all the towns destroyed. All we can do is help in whatever way that we can and keep moving forward. As hard as it may seem, we must rise up after something like this brings down a whole state. Other than the fires, I've been continuing my good streak and i'm smiling more than ever now. It is so weird, you know, i'm actually happy. Even if I am by myself on some days, I feel happy. It is the thought of all the love I have in my life. Whether that be from my family or the people who support my various career paths. I was walking down the street from the place where I rent a room in SF, the hill is so large and quite annoying, but I found myself laughing at nothing. I'm just so happy with the way that life has made a complete 180, this year. It feels so weird that in 6 weeks, it is all done. These words and the journey I have been on this year, will soon be a thing of the past. I see all the autumn leaves around me fall and I'm like a kid going right in to play with them. It is the little things like this, that make my heart feel so full. It is the thought of another Thanksgiving just a few days away. The thought of the smell of the amazing food, even though I don't eat meat, the thought of seeing family gather around, even if it is for one second, the annual black friday trip I take with Dashia, we dress up and act like royals around Target. That is what I think of every single time this time of year comes around. The warmth you feel in your heart, that's what I feel. It is freezing and smokey here but the amount of gratitude and gratefulness I have for 2018, it makes me so happy. As I look out at my now foggy view from the bay area, I am happy, because I know regardless of what is happening and what is coming, every little thing is gonna be alright. I'm excited to see where this story of mine is going. I talked about it ending before, in a way it will, once the year ends, but let's be real, it is a continuation and i'm excited to keep growing alongside the words I continue to write.
