I don’t want a perfect life. I want a happy life. A life filled with endless dreams, a beautiful love, and passion for living. A passion for traveling and meeting new people. A life filled with with books and stories of far off places and people. I don’t need my life to be perfect or even fit within your predetermined views. I need my life to be honest, joyful, and full of laugher. I need my life to me mine. I want a life that makes me happy everyday, because that’s a life worth living.
You’re going to have thousands of firsts. Your first concert, first kiss, first F on a test, first roller coaster ride, first broken heart, first job, first thing you crossed off your bucket list, and so many more. You’re always going to remember the first time you did something, but you never know when it’s going to be the last. Don’t bullshit or half-ass anything. Full ass it, and turn the bullshit into actual shit that is going to benefit you.
Breathe, my friend. You are not old, you are young. You are not a mess, you are normal. Extraordinary, perhaps. In the blink of an eye your life will change. And it will continue to change for decades to come. Enjoy it. Embrace it… Be grateful for the ride. You are not old, you are young. And faith will get you everywhere. Just you wait.
