“Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?”

This is a lesson I need to learn. I am so focused on the tomorrow I forget about the today. I am hoping that I am learning to appreciate life for all that is has to offer each day, but sometimes it becomes insanely difficult to appreciate today when my future is what is on the line. I am smiling today for doing the best I can each day.
