To all the people whose presence my life has been blessed by, past or present,
Whether or not we even speak anymore, you have helped me get to this point in my life. While some days I don't consider it an entirely enviable position, I can say without a doubt I have grown wiser if nothing else.
Thank you for everything you've taught me.
Thank you for the smiles we've shared. (Thank you for any hugs, too).
Thank you for the support you've given me.
Thank you for encouraging me.
Thank you for inspiring me.
Thank you for moments you've seen me when I couldn't see myself.
Thank you for the advice you've given me.
Thank you for believing in me.
Thank you for challenging me.
Thank you even for hurting me. I've learned and grown just as much through any struggles as the beauty and joys.
My heart overflows, to the point it feels a dam is bursting when I realize how blessed I am.
I am sorry for the times I have failed you, but I hope in earnest that each time has turned into a blessing and given you something you need.
I know I'm a bit of a mess, and I fail every day, but with whatever good is within me, I am reminded of how beautifully I am blessed.
Whether our paths cross today or never, thank you. I am grateful for you, and I wish nothing but the very best for you. I hope you find happiness in your every day, that you find your dreams, and that you pursue what is good with everything you have, even when it feels like you have nothing. You are beautiful and worth the world.
