"Why do people like you?"

Same question, asked by two different friends.

One asks because she's hurt that no one sees her efforts to be good. The other asks because she's intrigued to learn more about how to be good.

So I give them two very different answers.

I have now entered the last year of my 30s, and I've learned to be more selective about what I choose to care for. My love for life is impossible to miss, and so is my deep affection for the people in my life and for London - the place I now consider home.

Nowadays, it's easy to stay in this fulfilling state of happiness. Maybe it's because I no longer touch negative energy with a barge pole.
