Life is changing, and fast! It’s terrifying and exciting and soo unfamiliar.
But I guess that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
Life would be way too easy if we already knew how exactly everything was going to play out, and if we had nothing to be scared of then we wouldn’t have to learn to be brave.
Tomorrow my best friend leaves for college. Crazy, right? I am so excited for her. (And yes, slightly jealous.) But I can only imagine all the thoughts running through her mind. I think most are running through my mind too.
New friends, new home, new town, new way of life.
I know she will be okay though. There are so many adventures to go on, so much to learn, and so many new people to meet.
I only hope that she will take advantage of it. Let life lead her.
Amazing things happen when you just let it be….That was when Rose found the Doctor and we all know of the adventures they went on together. I want that for her.
We tend to put ourselves in our own little corner of the world with no intention to leave because of the familiarity and comfort of knowing. But where does that get us in life? Bored! Which is why I’m thankful that she’s leaving.
Of course I’m going to miss her. She’s been one of the best friends I have ever had. I tell her everything, and she tells me everything in return. Heck, we share a home. She takes care of my puppy. Loans me money when I need it. Let’s me cry on her shoulder. Watches and obsesses and cries over silly TV shows with me. Laughs with me. Yells at me. Tells me when I’m being an idiot. I guess you could say she’s more like a sister really.
And I am so, so thankful for that.
So D, as you move on to bigger and better things, my hopes are that you choose happiness above all else. Anything that doesn’t make you happy isn’t worth doing. Never choose broccoli over red velvet cake, my dear.
Try new things. While you are gone, I will be living vicariously through you so you MUST be adventurous. Don’t be scared of embarrassing yourself, sometimes you need to let loose so other people can see the crazy awesome person that I see in you.
Make new friends. Laugh often. Wear red. Go to some stupid football games. Flirt with boys. KISS boys.
But mostly, know that I love you and will be here for you whenever you need me. Never forget that, okay?
