We threw a Studio 54- themed party the night before with a bunch of my closest friends, everybody in their best 60's clothes and with their dancing shoes on, completed with sparklers, Andy Warhol- esque art hanging off the walls, raspy guitar tunes thrumming in the evening air and Lorde singing about cities we'll never see on screen. I danced through the night, glass of pink champagne in my hand, laughing and talking with everybody.
During one of those conversations one of my friends asked me how it felt like to be twenty- one. I hadn't really given it any thought yet so I said the first thing that came to my mind; that I felt better than ever before. As soon as those words came out of my mouth I realized they were very true. I really, truly, feel better than ever before: happier, calmer, more inspired and grateful beyond words for all the gifts life has bestowed upon me.
Love smiles through everything.
