In the end, 2019 changed me.
People walked away. People showed up. People stayed. I learned that I can’t make people stay. Or even show up.
Strangely, some people refuse to leave too.
One of the most humbling things I am learning is to receive what is given as a gift.
To open my hands to it, to hold it, to keep it. Even if it seems underserved.
Especially if it is.
I am so, so grateful.
