“There was a period when I was traveling alone and meeting awesome people on my journey and someone once said this to me:
“You look so happy talking and it makes my cheeks hurt from smiling so much just watching you speak”
and then I didn’t realize that till he pointed that out and I laughed it off because that’s exactly how ridiculously gay I was – I was in love with life and feeling so grateful to be alive and I couldn’t contain that much happiness within me.
I miss that passion for life. I miss that sense of wonderment that allow every single experience to feel like an amazing adventure. I deeply miss that crazily smiley me.”
