Karha and I just hit the 20-year milestone in our friendship. Our journey began as college roommates. Since then we’ve helped each other navigate various phases of life, each of us guiding the way when needed. We’ve witnessed each other’s growth, celebrated successes, and told the hardest of truths.

I love starting over. I’ve always been attracted to fresh starts and for years have engaged in elaborate, introspective rituals just before the start of a new year. I would carve out time to reflect on the past year in a meticulously chosen place with a tranquil mood and cozy ambiance. I sat for hours drinking tea and detailing my most prominent lessons learned in the last twelve months and my highest ambitions for the next in a lengthy entry in a brightly colored journal.
