i know we've all heard a million times about how we're in charge of our own lives and how we should go out and seize the day and build our huge dreams brick by brick until we're basking in the light of our own wonderful futures. and while that can all be a true, a lot of times it just sounds like a bunch of crap that's meant to inspire us but doesn't actually give us any real direction.
i love to think about the future. now that i'm graduating high school, the future i've always contemplated is quickly meshing with the present. the future is blossoming before me; yet something i imagined to perfection feels out of control.
i wrote this love letter to myself. read it as if you are speaking to yourself.
disclaimer: because this is a post about a breakup, i was obviously broken up with, but to anyone who clicked on this in hopes of reading a dramatic story about what happened, you've come to the wrong place. i am so blessed and thankful to have been in a healthy relationship for such a long time. we ended on good terms for mature reasons, and any negative emotions that i am feeling now come from my reaction to the actual breakup and in no way reflect how i was treated in the relationship. there was no drama and no problems, only trying to work out what was best for us in the long run.
hello beautiful!! my 18th birthday is coming up in a few days and before i become a legal adult i'd like to share the most important things i've learned thus far. some of these are serious and some of them less so, but each of them is relevant so let's get into it!
i love the new year. maybe even more than christmas. maybe. i love the new year because writing a 9 instead of an 8 at the end of the date just oozes with power and opportunity. coming up with resolutions for self-improvement, the endless number of fresh youtube new years content and even just cleaning my closet in preparation for the new year fills me with the kind of excitement that people typically only associate with monica geller.
for the past year or so, i've struggled a lot with coming to terms with my past and finding peace within my growth and progression throughout high school and what these things mean for my future.
i was listening to the song "note to self" by ben rector, and it inspired me to write a little note to my own self. hopefully it can also encourage someone else.
i compare myself all the time. i compare myself against my friends, against the people i see on instagram, and against where i used to be when i think i've changed for the worse.
hello beautiful!! these past few weeks i've really been diving into figuring out what the intentions behind my actions and choices are and its been something that's really weighed down my heart.
