I've been thinking about my future a lot lately. About what life has in store for me next year and years to come. I have a beautiful and long life ahead of me full of possibilities. Everyday I realize more and more how my life is totally in my hands, and that I can do anything and everything I want with it. Sometimes it's a scary thought. I could screw my life up with one choice, or I could change it for the better with one choice. It's terrifying.
Moving away from my family next year is one of the scariest things I can think about right now. I just love them so, so incredibly much... My parents,little sister, grandparents, Matt... I'm leaving them all for an unknown place with unknown people. I want to live the life I dream of and travel around the world: to Paris, Barcelona, London, and Venice... I dream of leaving this small town with small minded people and being me. But I feel like my love of home holds me back. I want and dream of this brilliant life of living, but my sometimes I don't know if I'll ever get the chance to do and see all of the things I want to. What if I'm too scared?
I hope that by this time next year I can read this post and be changed in my thoughts. I hope I'll be living at college, by myself, independent, and living my dreams. I don't want my fears to hold me back next year, or for the rest of my life.
With much love, Lauren.
