Once Upon a Time we are born, beautiful babies full of hope and light.
From the time we start crawling, the next few decades of our life are somewhat planned, time framed I like to call it. From crawling we start walking, talking and running, we can do no wrong and are praised for being perfect.
Soon enough we start school, now school is a very significant time for just about any of us, especially those very dramatic high school years. Even with the mess of it all, we know that this is a stage of life that has a finish line, however many of us don’t believe that we will ever reach that finish line because it seems so far away. I don’t think we give ourselves enough credit for passing high school somewhat with a sane attitude, even though we did go insane at times. Hormones are just about everywhere except where they should be, we fall madly in love almost every weekend and we convince ourselves that it’s forever. We act out almost every epic scene in our favourite TV shows because we believe that we are those characters sometimes, its only going to get weirder if I continue but what great stories! haha
Then the stage of the renowned college years. As human beings we give really significant advice but as listeners we won’t really know the true meaning until “we know”. Only until you experience the after math of college years do you really understand what it means to treasure them, even if you did grab those moments the best way you knew how. At this stage if your lucky, you meet some of the best people that become your family and you undergo a 360 degree analyses of yourself for the better and for the worse.
It’s the stage that comes next which asks the million dollar question, now what?
It is like EE Cummings states:
“It takes great courage to grow up and become who you really are”
It is okay to not have your life figured out in your 20’s, but it is not okay to believe that you have the potential to be anything less than great.
On that note, have a great night folks x
