"Once you miss the opportunity to say something, the words become increasingly toxic. The best thing to do is say everything. "
It truly is scary how fast life seems to pass us by. Only 14 years ago I took my first steps into the education system we are so fortunate to experience. I still remember being a small innocent child who had no regard for expectations, a fresh plate for new beginnings and memories.
And as I followed through I learnt more and more about the world we live in as well as the beautiful personalities the world has to offer… Also, the not-so-beautiful. Crushes evolved into lust and lust evolved into an immature love. The aftermath of which left a deep understanding of the word’s power and significance. Not to mention an alleviating freedom.
Then, a year ago from now, the young man had found himself graduated from high school. Celebrating with his friends, embracing the final days of what felt like eternal youth.
And now, he finds himself here, I find myself here. In the present where I’ve had a taste of the real world and independence. The fading connections of some became the vibrant connections of others. The sense of uncertainty evolved into an unshakable will of determination. A desire to reach greatness and respect.
Through all the trials and tribulations that my 19 years have had to offer, I’ve slowly come to realize the undeniable beauty of Time. As we continue to grow, there will be more and more opportunities to experience and more people to share them with. Through my reminiscence, I see the importance of family, friends and society. It all connects as one, making you the amazing individual you are today.
Time is truly a beautiful thing.
