Today is Matty’s birthday. He bought us tickets to go see Cirque du Soleil tonight way back in March. It was a splurge even then so we said it would be a birthday/anniversary present. My birthday was a month ago. Our 5-year anniversary would have been September 14th.
I’m going to go to the show tonight, and I’m going to have a good time. It will be bittersweet, but it’s my birthday present to Matty - a promise to keep having fun, to keep seeking out joy and to try and find adventure wherever I can. It’s what he would have wanted, and it’s what I continue to want. I guess that’s why we were so good together.
To everyone who loved Matt - have a drink to his memory today, and remember that you never have as much time as you think you do. Don’t put off the awesome for the everyday. It’s just not worth it.
