As I look at the streetlights as I drive home I find myself in thought about the events that happened that day. With each turn of the wheels beneath by car I can't help but think about the future and the road that my life is going down.
The future is a blank page that we write our fate upon. I personally blame all this thought about the future on me seeing Tomorrowland with my girlfriend tonight. Also thank you to my boss for letting me out of work early if you're reading this. I appreciate it.
I digress. I firmly believe that our future is able to be changed based on the action we take today. A lot of people out there believe that your date is set in stone but I guess I was never that person. I think we all have the chance to make the world and ourselves better. There are people that will choose the wrong ones. But there will also be those who choose the right ones. Whatever the case may be at the end of your life you are made up of the decisions you made.
Since I'm on Summer break right now I feel like I'm going through a transition period of what I want to do with my life. In high school everyone would ask if I knew what I was doing for a career. And honestly being 21 I still have no idea. It's a stressful period of time, an adult's early 20's, because a lot of our friends have gone off to different colleges or went off to conquer their dreams. You lose a lot of people and it's hard. But smooth seas never made for a skilled sailer, at least that's what I tell myself. I understand Peter Pan's plight when it comes to growing up because now that I'm legally an adult I dislike it immensely. It's not a grand ole time like it was made out to be. I wished my life away because I thought it was going to be better when better was being young and naive. At 21 I've realized that. You always hear stuff like that from older people, but you don't think they are all there. They may not be but a lot of what they say can be used to help your life. And for that I appreciate every ounce of advice I've heard from them.
I could say life isn't easy but that's a lie. It can be. It can be hard or it can be easy. There will be hard times in life and there will be good times. The key is to appreciate both because you only have one life to live.
So I don't know what the future holds. All I can do is be the best version of me for the future and do what makes me happy. And honestly I think that's all that matters.
