You Are Missing From Me

My Darling Somi, It’s been 1,933 days since death beckoned and you crossed over. Life has never felt the same since you left; at the very least, my world. Over 5 years later I remember the happenings like it was yesterday. The one phone call that changed my life rang just like any other regular call. Whenever people I love call me now, I pick up with hesitation and I pause to hear the happy or sad in their voice before…

 “Not getting my desired outcome is not a failure but a sign that more learning and practice are required here, and an opportunity to acknowledge myself that I tried.” Yael Philosof   I’ve always been a believer in persevering through situations in life. When I’ve had dreams or strong interests, I’ve moved mountains in attempt to build up them bit by bit from fantasy to reality because I strongly believed that I had to play…

Looking back now, I wish I had a true 360 view of what adulthood meant…
