To be honest, I did not want to write about this topic at the beginning because I didn’t know how to pick just a few days out of all the amazing days in the last decade of my life. And I thought even if I manage to pick those days out, I wouldn’t be able to do them justice by just writing a few sentences about them. Well, my concern is still legit, but I convinced myself to do it regardless. The truth is, something imperfect is better than the perfect thing that never exists. So here it is, the imperfect list of the best days of my decade.
My Dear Daughter/Son,
I don’t know how long I still need to wait to meet you but I know that I am ready and when we do meet, I will be the happiest person in the world!

1. As I imagine who you would be, I feel the need to start with imagining what you would look like. And I know that Vanity is not the first thing that I should start with, but to picture you, is to picture a beautiful child and a beautiful person! After all, there has to be some kind of advantage of having two beautiful parents, right? Although I do want you to understand, that good looks are an advantage but it does not give you the right to feel superior. And please also do not take it for granted. Practice self-care but do not mistake it with surface-level vanity. I’m sure you will grow to understand the difference.
