Wouldn’t it be amazing if there are friends who just stay? In spite of the distance, the circumstances and all, they are there, virtually if not physically.
To that friend that I haven’t seen for quite a while but I know will always be one of my go-to friends, happy birthday!
Thank you for treating every person you’ve become friends with an extension of your family (You’ve won the Hospitality Award), for sharing your unique, creative side (something we’re proud of), for staying humble (even if you have the right to be proud), and for being kind (not the trying to be nice kind of thing but genuinely kind).
But If there’s something I am most thankful of, that’s when you treat your friends like they are the most special people in the world. Always.
And before I forget, let me share this open letter from Emily Arren with you. Not because you need to know these pieces of advice, but because you are an example of what the writer of the letter is trying to suggest. Let’s continue enjoying single-blessedness while we still can. 😉
“There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty.
You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot.
Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.”
Cheers to what our fused brains could do. (Remember you once said that we share the same wavelengths (nosebleed!).
Cheers to our individual projects.
Cheers to escape.
Cheers to life.
Happy birthday , Dos! Please stay the same, all while pursuing your dreams.
P.S. I wouldn’t say that I don’t miss seeing you holding a camera and taking candid photos, because I do. But I am happier that you’ve started being a part of the film production especially the directing part. Kudos to you my friend! Soar high 🙂
