Life is unpredictable. At times it may seem like your world is falling apart around you and there isn't a lot you can do about it. Sometimes in life you just have to let it out when it gets too much. We are growing up so fast and the stress can become so much that you just want to break down. That is so okay to do. You are not weak for that. No, you are strong. Especially when you get back up. That is the one thing you must always remember. To get back up. Something I have learned a lot in the past week is that you are not alone. You may think so but people can surprise you. There is always someone there for you. It may be a best friend, a sibling, a parent, guardian or teacher. It doesn't matter who it is. The important thing is that they are there for you. Reach out when you are hurting, we will be there to help you get back up.
Life is also short. So so very short. It doesn't seem like it because you know 80 something years is a lot. Cherish the memories and places with the people you care about. Literally in a blink of an eye it can all change. It may not be the whole puzzle that shatters but an important piece may be missing. We grieve, we cry, we laugh, but most importantly: WE LIVE. We appreciate. We say thank you. We smile. We do crazy things. It is all apart of the life we live. We make memories. The little almost insignificant ones you think are not important are actually the most important. Don't forget. Remember and move on. LIVE.
