if something is meant to happen, life will find a way.

it all started with alexis.

this whole blog.

in college we used to write down five things a day we were thankful for.

want to know the honest truth?

i asked for and received oprah's twentieth anniversary dvd box set for christmas circa two thousand five. i remember sitting on the floor of our room in the president's suite watching disc after disc on our teeny tiny tv. i mean this thing was at its max 8 inches x 8 inches. that's the beauty of the story really.

one of the segments was on gratitude. oprah preached about keeping a "gratitude journal." shortly thereafter we got into a nightly routine of writing and sharing.

i think it has changed who i am to some extent because inevitably that process lead me to this blog.

i feel inclined to mention alexis today not only because she's one of my - what i like to call - guardian angels, but because she's on her path to accomplishing a big milestone this month.

new job.
new city.
new apartment.

check. check. check.

BIG things are happening for this girl. the special thing about alexis is that she does things at her own pace. she so delicately glides through life with a constant awareness of who she is and what she wants. it's a gracefulness unlike anything i've ever seen.

while we were once connected at the hip, we are now two independent souls bonded in the most special of ways.

here's my message for you.

may you hang on for dear life in your very own brand new adventure. i love you.
