I'm 20. It's July. Everything's new.
Some say spring is the season of rebirth and renewal, but for me, this year, it's summer. I feel different. I am different.
I'm experiencing a lot of (really wonderful) emotions that I haven't felt in so long. This makes me have hope. I feel passion, excitement, a fresh perspective and changed priorities.
People are beautiful and they deserve patience and love. Some people are not so beautiful, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve love. Just no more patience. They are dismissed, and for the better. There's way too much ahead to be worried about what has been left behind.
But mostly, it's beauty I see. The kind we don't stop to take in. The kind we take for granted in our family, our friends, our surroundings. When you actually realize how much love is around you, it will take your breath away.
It's crazy when new feelings spring up and the timing is perfect because they could have happened at any time in the past year but your heart chose now and it feels so right. And you're sure. When you can't take your mind off of someone, and you're sure.
It's funny because I've exited my teen years and now I feel like a giddy bubbly everything-for-the-first-time 8th grader. It's so good. It reminds me that age is but a number and there are so many possibilities.
That's it, right there. So many possibilities. Every day, for the rest of our lives. To take advantage of—to appreciate— just one... it's the best feeling in the world.
