Older & Wiser

2018, you’ve taught me a lot! You’ve changed me a lot too!

You’ve been the year where I did a lot of growing up! Cut my hair (my shield all these years) shorter, added more hi lights, as you kept gifting me with more greys, and gained more wrinkles, but also more wisdom in the process.

I sure made mistakes while you were watching too! Yet you didn’t tell anyone! Thank you for keeping my secrets.

2018, you’ve woken me up everyday, got me out of bed, and tucked me in at night. Your eyes, followed me through, every single day! And now! You are ready to say goodbye. Ready to become history! My history! Everyone’s history!

2018, you were much kinder to me than some of your previous sisters! And I thank you for that!

You have taught me to laugh more, cry less, love more, forgive more, listen more and be more understanding. I can say, I am very grateful, to have become a better version of who I used to be, under your watch.

2018, it wasn’t all smooth sailing! But such is life, and that’s how it will always be!

I stand here, waving you goodbye! The countdown, has already begun! And I can’t help, but feel a deep gratitude for all the lessons, and all that I’ve learnt!

2018, you’ve helped me add more to this scary world! I am so lucky I was able to do that! And I truly hope, that I’ll continue to give light, hope and warmth to others in the upcoming year! And warm up my own heart walking beside them, when the road gets a little lonely for me; and learn from ‘their’ light.

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

  1. Beautiful, beautiful words, Kat, which come from a very beautiful heart. I love what you wrote. Your words are pure. They are alive, pulsing, hungry, humble, human, excited, eager, tempered, untamed, waiting impatiently, and laughing and smiling. And all those words, and all those ‘things,’ are you. Thank you for sharing you with us, making us feel more beautiful for reading you and seeing you and journeying with you.

    Absolutely beautiful: your words, and you. Our worlds are more beautiful because of you.

    Keep writing, my gifted, talented, so-very-hard-working exploring visionary friend who takes us along on her journeys. Thank you. And may we all be worthy of the journey in 2018, and travel to parts unknown, without, and within.

    1. Oh my Michael!
      I had to look behind me, around me, again! Pointing my finger to my face abs asking imaginary humans around ‘me?!’
      Your words are really kind!
      Thank you!
