tender heart,
don't be afraid to love.
don't be afraid to fall.

don't be afraid when your wings can no longer carry your heavy.

i want you here
because i can't do this feeling so alone.

i want you here
because i just honestly miss you.

i want you here
because i really, really need to know.

we need to know.

"are you tired?"
"no. i'm just happy to see you reach the top."

"...you did it!!!"

main tumhe bahut yaad kar rhi hoon...

it's hard to want to reach out and touch you. knowing i can't.
it's hard to want to lean in to you and just be. knowing i can't.
it's hard to want to hear your voice over inconsistent phone connections.

...feeling like every second is so urgent.

it's hard.
some days, too.damn.hard.

most days i wonder of the realities.
our reality.

they say turning 30 is a pivotal moment in one's life.
well, i was recently welcomed into this exclusive, inspired-laden-season-in-life however, in no way do i attribute my juncture due to age! *eye roll*

age is...
just.a.number - the pit stops in our journey to pause and reflect.
and i have had a lot of that very recently.

travel changes you, they say.
and this, i agree with and will stand in court with a Bible in one hand
-- travel changes you.

the days of preparation to trek in the Himalayas wasn't without its traumatizing times. as i embarked on new experiences, friendships suddenly lost their footholds and legitly, i felt 'attacked' for being who i am.

and so, i blamed myself and only me.

post trek, i returned to deeper blows of even more lost friendships.
this time, the person i have embraced on my travels isn't one to sit and whine about it.

as i walked the harsh deserts and grew to depend on myself,
i begun to let go of who i was, who i thought i was and,
dove deeper into who i really am.

never will i claim myself perfect - i know it isn't all butterflies and yes, some things i hide in shame - yet i have found the courage to finally be me.

this is my time to embrace me.
and if you can't keep up - i won't fret.

i am alone, yes.
but not lonely.
