In a way so many things have changed since then, the essential parts have remained the same.
I have learnt and grown so much in all these years,
I've become happier in terms of understanding life better and knowing that you create the life you live.
But what I miss the most is my innocence and the energy I had towards life back then, I feel like you get thrown into these tornadoes and hurricanes, sometimes fall over small bumps in the road, your wounds heal, but not fully, and there are these scars left behind, that leave you with memories of when times were rough, and some days it gets harder to get back up, and brush up yourself off,
And I feel like especially at the age I'm at I put a lot of pressure on myself to be a certain person and who I want to be,
I always thought I would've accomplished more, and forget to just be in the moment and appreciate how far I've actually come, and all the times I've been through something, that it's made me stronger and given me perspective.
I guess what I'm saying is that, things do change but it's how you decide to go about it that will either get you to retract to your comfort zone or push you to your limits so you can be a better and stronger you.
I have to remind myself mostly all days ;) Picture: Sweet 16. August 27 2007 (10 years ago)
