Hello lovely reader. I hope this post finds you well. I have recently had a lot of time to do some deep thinking. In fact I have so much on my mind and going through my brain I find it hard to put down in words. Since summer began my life has not been that eventful. A lot of sleeping in, babysitting, and a little bit of fun has what it has mostly consisted of. I have had a lot of time to think and begin to plan for what this coming school year has to hold. I am hopeful. Hopeful that my senior year of high school is filled with laughter, love, and memories. That through every happy, sad, and anger filled moment that I continue to seek God in everything that I do.
One thing I have realized this summer thus far is just how much I need to enjoy the little things. I realize that in a years time my mom won’t be there to comfort me when I am upset. That I won’t be able to have random movie nights with my parents. That I’m not going to be able to walk in after school and see bandit. Everything is about to change. While I am so ready to meet fresh faces and start clean. Part of me wants to hold on the high school and the comfort that comes with it. I am optimistic though. I know that I will have those core friends that I hold on to. However, I may not ever see the faces of some of my classmates again. That to me is scary. This small bubble I have grown up in is about to pop. So while I am eager to jump ahead and go onto new adventures, I am going to really just take in and make memories that will last a life time this summer and upcoming school year. But for now I will not rush through summer to school time. I will soak up what I have left of summer and milk it for all its worth.
