a small piece of a 21-year-old's journey through life
"Even now, all possible feelings do not yet exist, there are still those that lie beyond our capacity and our imagination. From time to time, when a piece of music no one has ever written or a painting no one has ever painted, or something else impossible to predict, fathom or yet describe takes place, a new feeling enters the world. And then, for the millionth time in the history of feeling, the heart surges and absorbs the impact.”
― Nicole Krauss, The History of Love"
One of my all time favorites.
It’s a wonder I have made it this far.
From Day 1 of my life, obstacle after obstacle have been placed in front of me, yet I still find the strength to move past and grow. I have a lot to thank my father for, that’s for sure, but it truly has been a wonder just how many people are willing to step in and take care of you.
I will be the first to say it hasn’t been a cake walk, but I do laugh at how “terrible” life was. As I grow up, I find it interesting to listen to my advice. I like to think of myself as an example and a light, but I also see how bits and pieces of my encouragement are from words of others:
Honestly, I love to see how I have been molded and made into this person, who in all honesty, I am very proud of.
What I am getting at, is that is everyone should realize their opportunities to guide, shape, or advise those around them. It’s not only by words, but example. Taking each day for what it is and moving forward in all that is set out.
I’ve made it this far
Time goes on..
