this year i choose to burn my good candles on a tuesday at noon, just because. i choose to use the expensive lotion, the one i keep tucked safe up on the counter. not ration any of my most cherished belongings, because i am worth investing in — right now.

this year i choose to wear that thing. you know, the one i told myself i would slip on when i looked a certain way? i choose to love my body. this vessel i have been given. and her seasons as they shift.

this year i give myself permission to change and keep changing. for i understand there is an underlying truth when it comes to becoming — it doesn’t have to mirror anyone else.

this year i choose to let go. really let go. of the heavy, of the half-hearted, no more forcing connection where it no longer lives — i choose to nourish what’s willing to grow.

this year i choose to be grateful for the teachings of my yesterday. i honor my wholeness when i honor my whole story — even the shaky parts.

this year i choose to step forward. clear eyes. heart open. two feet grounded. palms wide to the all-is-possible, unknown + new.

Hey, Ilhan’s dad here: 
Twenty three years ago, my family and I arrived at an airport in Washington DC. We were newly arrived refugees in this country, from a refugee camp in Kenya. I had heard about the promise of America, prosperity for all and hope for a better tomorrow. 
I could never have dreamed that twenty three years later I would return to the same airport with my daughter Ilhan by my side, the day before she is to be sworn in as the first Somali-American elected to the United States Congress.

You, of course, can imagine how emotional this is and why I am incredibly proud of her.

It’s an honor to have her represent me and our family is so humbled that Ilhan has the opportunity to serve in our democracy. I wish Ilhan's grandfather could be here to witness this historic moment. He will be here in spirit as Ilhan will place her hand on his Quran for the ceremonial swearing in.

Tomorrow, members of Ilhan's team will be covering the events of the day. We all hope you will follow along and share in our excitement for what the New Year will bring.

As Ilhan would say, forward together.
