Gratitude

I can’t believe I live the life that I live. Do you ever just take a step back and say ‘wow, this is my life.’ I’m 21 years old and I’m in Denmark having adventures that will stick with me for the rest of my life. I wonder how different my life would’ve been if I didn’t have the courage nor support to study abroad.

If you know me well, then you know that I spend a lot of time thinking about what ifs and the future. It’s just the type of person that I’ve been for as long as I can remember. It’s exhausting and overwhelming at times for sure but it has a lot of positives to it too.

Honestly it’s all about balance. Too much of anything can be overwhelming. We’re all trying to find that happy medium and it takes time.

Well I learn that it’s okay to enjoy the present more. I don’t do that enough and I owe it to myself and my loved ones to appreciate it more often.

Just don’t enjoy the present so much that you’re 45 minutes late to an event that you planned with someone else 😅…

I just gotta say I’m very blessed and fortunate to have the life that I have. I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for all the love and support that I got from others throughout the course of my life. Do I tirelessly work my ass off so I can do what I plan to do with my life?

Absolutely.

Do I cherish my loved ones to know that I don’t have to do everything now?

Absolutely.

Am I terrified about the immediate future and all the unknown questions? Am I anxious to be reunited with my friends who are graduating and preparing to see them off?

Absolutely.

I don’t know where I’ll end up in life when everything is said and done. All I do know is that I want to be a good person who does good. Those are two very important lessons my parents instilled into me.

To everyone reading back home.

I love and miss you all dearly. I’ve changed a lot and I remained the same in a lot of ways. It was and is difficult to know that life goes on whether I’m there or not. That’s okay though. That doesn’t mean that our relationship is weaker as a result. It just means that we have to approach it differently than we did previously.

To my special people and the rest of the class of 2018: congratulations on soon completing this monumental milestone in your life. I’m very happy and proud of you! It is a very joyous occasion and one that we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.

Know that I’ll always be rooting for you and all the good you’ll bring into the world.

Peace, love, and happiness as always.

Ignite Hope.
