never fails

It really never fails.

No matter how exhausted I am, no matter how absolutely heavy my heart is, no matter how lost my soul seems to be, I go to work and it is better.

Our lives do not change because of turns and leaps and harmonies and hip-hop - as a matter of fact, they just bring me back to reality. These are the moments that life is made of: music, smiles, Saija getting her splits, Kooka nailing a perfect triple, Clara showing me her sassy dance face.

I've been grateful for a lot of people this month - right now I'm especially grateful for 18 and under crew - the ones who create stories and magic and sparkly pieces of life with me. I would be completely lost without them. This is what life looks like - and they remind me every night.
