advice about living life
In the years of me living I have come to the conclusion that life is not what people want it to be. No matter how hard you try to change your life it's never going to be what u want it to be. Yeah you'll have those ups and downs; but life is unpredictable. You don’t know what’s going to happen or were you are heading and you wont find out tell it's to late. When you say goodbye to your loved ones and friends, how do you know you will see them again? You could drive to work right now thinking of what you’re going to do next weekend or the weekend after that. How do you know you’re going to see next weekend? The answer is you don’t know.
I try to think of today and only today, because if I think of the future I’ll get this perfect image built up in my head. And then when I get there...it's nothing that I had visualized at all. You could be that one person that strives to get to where they want to be and to get their ideal future. But those people are not living life; they’ll have life live them. They’re being worn down by all this stress that they have accumulated over the past years. And what do you have at the end? Nothing. It turns out that what you wanted wasn’t as it was made out to be. And you wished you did those things everyone else did, go to parties, stand out in the rain and yell not caring how much of an idiot you look like. Or to go to the city park when it’s fall and the ground is covered with beautiful leaves, sit in your back yard or in the grass somewhere and just take time to look up at the clouds.
And when you get to the end of your life weather it tomorrow or years and years from now. What would you say when your asked if you accomplished everything in life? Parents, teacher, teens, or what ever you are, take time to do all those things. To enjoy the simple things that this crazy, unpredictable, harmful yet wonderful world gave you. Take time out of you busy day and go up to your loved ones and tell them that you love them no matter what. Because who knows if you’ll see them next time, who knows if they’ll see you. If you get in to a fight with them, then apologize. No matter who’s right or wrong, because you’ll feel horrible when they’re gone and you’ll wish you hadn’t fought. And just live. You may be thinking this girl is crazy and she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. That’s fine, but I do know what I’m talking about and even though I am young I been through some stuff that you couldn’t even imagine. These are just some advice I had come to conclude: life is an adventure, take advantage of it, and think of now and not tomorrow, because why would you want something to be hard and unbearable?
