I Am 29

Photo by Anna Vander Stel

Today is 09.09.2019 Born on 09.09.1990… that makes me 29! (on the human scale of finite earthly time).

Two really important things to share on this special day:

First, I am grateful for people in my life (Recent or old, close or far, friends or strangers). 29 years of adventure and boredom, success and failure, I come to the same conclusion:

"Nothing matters in life but people."

Yes, that’s YOU reading this now! Thank you for impacting my life in ways I understand and ways I don’t.

𝗦𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗡𝗗, I’ve recently developed an obsession with 𝗦𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗦 🧦. I see myself in my socks... I think I am my socks!

I cuff my jeans to allow my suffocated socks to also have a say in who I am… Though colorblind, I love bold colors and fun patterns: solid one-color, stripes, polka dots, argyle, novelty, and any other type 🧦🧦

(Fun fact: I sometimes unintentionally wear unmatching colors because of my colorblindness).

One thing I am training myself to learn is to "𝑶𝒑𝒆𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑫𝒐𝒐𝒓".. To take off my guards. And to give space to people to enter my life.

And so, this is an open welcome to the generosity of people I appreciate in my life (YOU!)... to share with me the socks you think speaks who I am. Socks are more than just cloth to me. Wearing them is having your support on my side (covering part of me, and shining a restrained yet another magical part inside of me).

I am ready to receive socks from friends or strangers. Surprise me… I’d love to be socked! (Bad pun 😅).

I may receive many socks or none. Either way, I am proud that I took the step and "𝑶𝒑𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑫𝒐𝒐𝒓".

Sending you colorful hugs and hearts on this special day!

Yours in Magic,
