My beautiful dad would have turned 56 on 24 March of this year. And as a present for him today, I would like to give a few thanks away.
Thanks for raising me well.
Thanks for pushing me to always be the best version of myself.
Thanks for being here when things got hard.
Thanks for helping me on the way out of very dark times.
Thanks for loving me for who I am.
Thanks for taking me to wonderful places around Europe and making me embrace so many different cultures, which have shaped me and the way I see the world today.
Thanks for letting me go when it was time for me to leave the nest and the past behind.
Thanks also for reminding me to never forget my roots and be proud of them.
Thanks for encouraging and always believing in my dreams, even when they sounded crazy and completely unrealisable, and made you a little sad too.
Thanks for showing me selflessness.
Thanks for telling me that I could do anything if only I wanted it bad enough.
