3 days before the last year of being in my 20s
“How are you?” is probably one of the hardest questions I’ve had to answer. Just how can one describe the myriad of feelings and thoughts that go through one’s head?
Today is probably different. Today I can clearly describe how I feel.
Despite taking my time and a few wrong turns, I am exactly where I belong— somewhere far away from restless, halfway through comfortable and on the way to contentment.
I have realized that I was raised well by very outstanding parents. After 29 years, I now reap the benefits of the values that they have preached. So thanks mom & dad for all the scolding!
I grew up with amazing siblings — my first friends and probably my best. Despite the distance and the lack of everyday interaction, they will fight for me if I can’t and consider themselves as the only people who should make me shed a tear.
I have a long list of great friends. Some I haven’t seen for years but have remained fond of old memories. It is not often that I hear my mobile phone beep but those out of the blue comments of how much difference I made in other people’s lives can keep me smiling even through the toughest times. Cheers to friendship!
And then there’s Nice! There are days when I can’t quite believe how much more wonderful my life is since the day in the pantry. I am giddy with happiness that I am getting married to someone who convinced me that love is worth a lifetime commitment.
