a beginning not an ending

3 years, 8 months ago

I just wanted to share my new outlook. It’s been a hard road that has been full of endings. The ending of my longest relationship yet, high school graduation, finally turning 18 two days before grad.. It’s a lot to take in all at once, but I’ve cried my tears and just wanted to post my excitement over starting with fresh eyes.
Why waste time mourning my past, while I have such wonderful possibilities before me. I have plenty of things for a to-do list, including getting into college, getting a new job and hopefully saving money to use on travel or moving out expenses.
Like I said it’s a lot to take in, in such a rush (only a month and a half), but with friends beside me…. I’m glad to say I’ll make it through with a smile on my face. I just have to enjoy the now moments.

Thanks for reading. Share if you’d like and I hope all of you look to a brighter future and not a grey one.

While a list of things to do/accomplish is great, be mindful that sometimes life doesn’t always allow you to do those things. Find an idea that you find important and pursue it and don’t let go this will help you do those things sometimes inadvertently.

Congrats on graduation! May the future bring you great possibilities and may you rise up achieve them.
