When Thilda turned 23



Thilda’s birthday is in late August, on one of those last days when the sun is still warm, just before the summer let go for the fall to take over. For her 23 birthday we had a champagne (prosecco) lunch at our cousins place, kidnapped her to a forest picnic, went to a live concert where our favorite band, crying day care choir, was playing and dedicated two songs to her..
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

From me, she got four letters. One that I wrote six years ago. One that she may open when she turns 30. And two others.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
”To my dearest sister on your 23’th birthday.

 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
When you read this letter, you have been existing on this planet for exactly 8400 days. For 8400 days, your lungs have been expanded by oxygen every other second, 8400 times have you fallen asleep and woken up (apart from the evenings we filled with glitter and decadence), and for 8400 days I have had the privilege to call you my sister.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I know that you sometimes wish you were older, perhaps because you think that you would be taken more seriously if you were, or because you want to feel more equal to all those you surround yourself by. But you know what, I know that most people who are older than you secretly envy you. For everything that you have accomplished, despite your young age, for all the talent you posses and all the good things you have in front of you. That you, despite your young age, has accomplished much more things than many of the 40-year olds will ever do.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Do not hurry, enjoy instead of getting to be just 23 years old. You’ve got all that in front of you.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
You will be 25, 28 and 30, then the years will pass quickly (because your wise three years older sister has already noticed it – that the older you get the faster the time passes).

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
For example you have already, as 23-year-old worked with world famous brands (not that it matters), managed to travel to almost all parts of the world, you’ve been living in a car, received top grades in all subjects (except one, but it shows just embrace your devils), you have loved and been loved, you have seen how the sun goes up, scattered the night after hours of dancing and gave life to a brand new day.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Because you know me so well that when we have been in the same raves 9 times I have been there three, maybe because I’m eager when it comes to creating memories and see how the sun rises with you.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 

Think how much you will have in you no matter how many numbers you will get. and how much you will accomplish in with the course of life.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
If I had been blessed with a minimum musical talent I would have made an own written song for you, singing a jingle about our journey through life with a guitar or recording a fantastic video where all your friends are sharing with their love for you. But unfortunately, I was born unmusical, and I can’t film either. So, instead of that, a wrote some little words for you.

 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
When I think of my life you show up within a millisecond. For there is almost nothing in my life, so far as I have been through that you can not relate to. For you have been with me and shared just about everything, all the way.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’m so looking forward to every new coming thing with you. New life staget, all future adventures and escapades that is waiting ahead of us, memories that will be created and all upcoming birthdays to celebrate.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
From the deepest bottom of my heart, all the way to infinity. Beyond the stars, galaxies and the universe.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
So it has always been, and so it will always be.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

I look forward to all the upcoming days, adventures, pranks, memories and life with you.”
