Readers, if I die tomorrow, there is one thing you should know about me. I am over-saturated. Always. If I were a salad, I'd be drowning in dressing. This is me, this who I have always been and this is who I will always be.
I work hard and I play hard. If I am your friend, I will be the best friend I know how to be. If I am your sister, I will protect you above all others. If I am your daughter, I will live for you. If I love you, I will love you hard. I will move mountains for you. I will give you everything I have. And more.
I fall in love every single day, over and over again. With people, places, experiences, and things. It doesn't make my feelings or intentions any less genuine, it's just my M.O. I feel hard. I am constantly inspired.
My highs are high. My lows are low. I cry often, but not always out of sadness. When something really amazing happens, I excuse myself from life for a few minutes to be alone. And cry. There are few things more gratifying than tears of happiness.
I stumble over my own sentences yet I still talk too fast. I commit to too much even though I'm easily overwhelmed. My mind is in a million places all at once and it's a rare moment that I'm not multitasking. I literally do not know how to relax.
I am the furthest thing from perfect, which is ironically what I've strived to be my entire life.
And yet, I come here and I am safe. You all let me be who I am, and I am eternally grateful for this haven that you've helped me create.
I wear my heart on my sleeve and I try to give you the most candid side of me, but it's not often that I stop and tell you how I'm doing. So I've excused myself from life for a few moments to have a good cry and tell you all that I am truly happy. Okay, so I guess there are two things you should know about me.
Thanks for joining me on my journey. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for reading and for encouraging. I had a euphoric day today; nothing outstanding happened, but it kind of hit me just how good my life is and just how lucky I am. I had dinner with one of my closest friends and she appropriately said, "It's a Teddi Tuesday!" It certainly was, and I loved every minute of it.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
