Waking up on day 10,000..
Today is my 10,000th day on this heavily damaged planet (the Amazon is still burning y’all) and it’s been a pretty wild ride so far.
If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you know that a good amount of these 10,000 days weren’t spent feeling my best. Looking my best. Being my best.
But, I’m here.
Feeling the best I’ve ever felt.
Looking the best I’ve ever looked.
And being the best version of my self that I could’ve ever dreamed possible.
I don’t know how many days out of 10,000 that I consistently didn’t feel at rest. Constantly on edge. Daily walking through life as if I was trudging through mud while breathing through a straw in 65% humidity. All of this while attempting to minimally function.
Yesterday resembled those days in a way. I was battling hard to stay out of those parts of my mind that are dark and twisty. But I put out a call to my tribe and they answered. It was beautiful. I received so many good vibes, virtual hugs, calls, texts, voicemails, voice memos, and just all-around good juju that I had no choice but to wake up on day 10,000 extremely grateful.
Grateful that all the shit that encompassed Days 1-9,999 didn’t take me out of here.
Grateful for how Days 1-9,999 have shaped me to be the me that I am on day 10,000.
So here’s to day 10,001 and beyond.
I can’t wait to see what the next 10,000 have in store for me (I mean, if the Amazon stops burning.)
Post Publishing Edit: Shoutout to Melanie who pointed out that I had 999 instead of 9,999 lol — feel free to hit me up if you ever see errors, I suck at proofreading, even when I actually do proofread.
