This is an especially special post - I'm SO proud to say that this is my Seester :) Harmeet Bhatti @hbhatti19 .
Gosh where do I even begin. We have been through so much and let me say - although the world now gets the best of me it's because this dear one had to put up with the worst of me. I love big but it took several years to learn how to contain and channel the love emotion and sensitivity I possess. Yet my sister loved me through all the melt downs, depression, projections and angry bouts even when I pushed her away - even though she was climbing her own personal mountains navigating family, school, womanhood as a first generation Indian-Canadian women.
She's the one that holds me accountable - to my family, and my community in a way that no one else can. She was also my biggest role model - although younger than me she was the first in our family to break the mold of what it means to be a Punjabi women - I was always in awe of her gregarious, outgoing, love it or leave it way of being in the face of rigid traditional expectations.
And her heart- oh her heart!
She nursed our grandfather until the day he passed on - in a way no one else could - and continues to be a bridge to our elders. She is also the only person that parallels my undying adoration for anything with Sandra Bullock, Dawson's creek, General Hospital and Celine Dion.
She also taught me the art of shamelessly indulging in guilty pleasures like a queen. Meetie you amaze me - I know I don't say it enough - but my roots are deep because of you. You are always with me - no matter how far from home I am - you are forever at home in my heart. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
And naturally @hbhatti19 has a long list of talents (we do share the same blood) she's a badass actress, photographer, massage therapist, artist and just started a rad stationary biz @partyrickshaw with our cousin @achahal19. She is constantly taking her passion for life (and frustrations with it) and channeling it into beautiful creative healing ventures. Support her, follow her, send her the biggest hugs and kisses you can muster because she deserves it!
