Twenty-Nine

Today marks the completion of my 28th year and the start of my 29th. 28 was my 4th seven year cycle. You can read all about seven year cycles and what I had to say about them here. As a year of change, 28 delivered everything it promised and more. I took the energy that 28 had to offer and implemented  sweeping changes. I am very proud of the person I have grown into over this last year.

I said yes to new opportunities and challenges. I have a new found bravery and strength. I have found a personal agency that I never possessed before. I know my mind, and I know how to speak my mind. I've begun pursuing my goals and my passions in a way I never have before. I'm following my heart.

I found peace. I found love within myself.

I'm home now. At home in my body, in my family, in my country, but most importantly in my self. Nothing and Nobody can take that from me.

I close this 28th year with gratitude. This journey of change was so needed, so vital. I am grateful for the pain of growth and the dearest ones in my life who helped me through.

Now it is my responsibility to pass it forward.

I'm in uncharted territory now. Doing something I've never done. Pursuing a road I've never been down. 

Today this song speaks to me. 

"everybody has to get their hands on gold and I want uncharted'

Lyrics: Uncharted by Sarah Bareilles

No words, my tears won't make any room for more
And it don't hurt
Like anything I've ever felt before
This is no broken heart
No familiar scars
This territory goes uncharted

Just me in a room sunk down in a house in a town
And I don't breathe
No, I never meant to let it get away from me
No, too much to hold
Everybody has to get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted

Stuck under the ceiling I made
I can't help but feeling

I'm going down
Follow if you want I won't just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out
A foolproof idea, so don't ask me how
To get started, it's all uncharted

Each day I'm countin' up the minutes
'Til I get alone, 'cause I can't stay
In the middle of it all, it's nobody's fault, but I'm
So alone, never knew how much I didn't know
Oh, everything is uncharted

I know I'm getting nowhere
When I only sit and stare like

I'm going down
Follow if you want I won't just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out
A foolproof idea, so don't ask me how
To get started, it's all uncharted

Jump start my kaleidoscope heart
Love to watch the colors fade
They may not make sense
But they sure as hell made me

I won't go as a passenger, no
Waiting for the road to be laid
Though I may be going down
I'm taking flame over burning out

Compare
Where you are to where you want to be
And you'll get nowhere

I'm going down
Follow if you want to or just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out
A foolproof idea, so don't ask me how
To get started

I'm going down
Follow if you want I won't just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out
A foolproof idea, so don't ask me how
To get started, it's all uncharted
