Within You Is A World Of Spring, Sakura, Cherry Blossoms

25 Things I Am Most Grateful For

I turned 25 this month. That’s a quarter of a century where I’ve somehow managed to stay alive, not make too many regrettable decisions, met some awesome individuals, explored far away lands, fell in and out of love… It hasn’t all been smooth sailing, yet all in all, I have had so much to be thankful for.
