I’ve been thinking a lot lately. Forgiveness is really key to life. Sometimes, the people we care about make mistakes, sometimes because they’re young, stupid & reckless… other times because they’re human. We must make mistakes to learn. I used to think I hated certain people who did horrible things to me and treated me terribly too, but I don’t. I don’t hate anyone I’ve ever cared for or loved. I’m thankful for everything they ever did for me because in one way or another, they helped me grow and as I grow, I learn. I am no perfect human being, but I’m working on it. Lately, I’ve learned the importance of appreciating those who love you and disregarding everything else that’s negative. I want to explore the world, travel with loved ones, try new foods, get lost in beautiful abandoned places, and go to concerts around the world. Now that I’m finally out of high school, all this has been available to me and I could not be happier. I’ve made things right with several people who used to mean a lot to me and now we’re picking up where we left off and it’s really great to see. I want to be able to look back in life and think “I love that person or I loved that person, he/she was great.” I don’t want to look back and have hate in my heart. I think swallowing your pride and talking to someone is a step of maturity and if you can do that, you’re moving towards the right direction. I know there are a few people I miss I’d like to reconnect with, but I’m not sure if they’re ready due to personal reasons. I’d like to think that if someone missed me or cared about me, they’d call or text me. If someone were to do that for me, I’d definitely respond and try to fix things and get back to how we were. Life is good. Life is beautiful. I just can’t wait to adventure and explore it with the love of my life. With that being said, it’s time for me to hit the gym. Xoxo.
