The good the dreadful and all that lies ahead. I am now 18 years old. 18? Man, if you asked me back in 5th grade I would not think one second it would fly by this fast.
The future is what lies ahead. The next second, minute, hour, day. I everyday am so excited for what it holds but so anxious at the same time.
College. Jobs. Friendships. Relationships. Career. That’s about all of it right? All we here everyday.
“Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.” – Thich Hanh
For me the future is experience, love, education, excitement, adrenaline. Yes, school and jobs are already a given but in between that you have endless hours to make everyday a story to tell when you are old.
In a world as crazy as this we have a choice to be consumed in routine or to dig ourselves out of it to truly live. Not everyone will agree with you and that’s okay. It’s YOUR life and if you had to do your teen years over again what would you change? Maybe you wouldn’t or maybe you would.
I know for a fact I would not have sat on my phone as long as I would. I know I should of not passed up concerts. I should have taken care of my health more.
You can look upon what you haven’t done or you can take the time now to add something exciting to your everyday process.
In a day. To truly live.
Remember happiness is not a state to arrive at but a manner of traveling.
Enjoy the journey. Love yourself. Love others. The world is large and if lived right you will not want to do it over.
