My 40th year – February (month #10)

February was all about time with the girls; I spent a lot of time with my friends this month. Not particularly planned, per se, it’s just how it ended up and it’s done wonders for me.

Last winter me, Emma, B and Sarah booked our spots for the Kepler Track over Waitangi weekend and promptly forgot all about it until this January. We decided to make a holiday of it and spent just over a week down South hiking, exploring, eating, drinking, dancing and laughing. And OH MY WORD it was so much fun.

Good friends are really important to me. They’re my cheerleaders, my different perspectives, my support, my positivity, and my chosen family when my actual family are in a different country.

Me and the Poet aren’t together any more, and spending a week around people who are supportive when I was feeling quite sad was super helpful. Everyone knows that shitty time after a break up, regardless of what happened, when you feel a bit crap and low and need people around who hold space for you.

Reinforcing those connections and being reminded that I’m not alone was just what I needed.

I love running, writing, travel and adventure. I'll give anything a go once, and am always up for a laugh.
