(I have sent this letter to my representatives in the US Congress, I have decided to post it here because I believe that the message goes beyond just my own representatives, but to everyone that represents our interests in government. I have changed some of the formatting for Vocal, but the message remains the same. If you agree with my message then please share it. We live in dark times, but that only means we must shine the light much brighter. Let your voice be heard. Let our voice be heard. // Namaste - Ju <3)
When I take a look back at my life so far, there is one song that proved to be a turning point. That song is “Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves. Okay, well maybe its her whole Golden Hour album that took me on this amazing journey in a single night that changed my life completely. At the end of the journey, Musgraves closes with “Rainbow” and in that precise moment I knew everything was going to be okay.
Sunday was a weird day. Death of Kobe Bryant. Coronavirus spreading. Trump impeachment news. Protests all across the world. Seemingly worse and worse natural disasters all across the world. And it’s only the end of January.
So, today’s post is going to be very different; because it’s about my personal life, rather than my take on the outside word. It dawned on me this past week that I am turning 24 today, and it brought up a lot of different emotions in me; for different reasons. The past 5 years have been filled with so many incredible moments, good and bad. And I say incredible for the bad moments because looking back now I wouldn’t take a single thing back. I wouldn’t want to do a single thing differently. Not the tears. Not the heartache. Not the depression. Not the anxiety. None of it. Because I would not be who am I today, on my 24th birthday, without going through everything that I went through.
