Twenties

Luke and I dance

Baby, please remember that your twenties are for screwing up. I spent a lot of time feeling awful about my screw ups. It’s just this year that I’ve realized that that’s what my twenties were for. They were for dating the wrong people and hurting the wrong people and flaking and learning and learning and learning.

I learned from it, mostly.
And I trust that you will learn from it too.

And if your finances aren’t ship shape,
your love life isn’t snug and lovely,
your mental stability under question,

Lord knows I was given it.
