life is a journey

Let's try and promise one another to make it to many destinations in our lifetimes.

i wake

I wake up every morning, thankful for what I have.

I'll always have the love of my family,
my best friends,
and the people I've met and those I don't even know yet.

Even though it's hot I wake up to blue skies and sunshine,
palm trees swaying in the warm breeze,
and a city filled with possibilities.

I have the luxury of a car that can take me to the grocery store,
to work, the mall, or the gym,
and even across cities and states that offer me even more opportunities.

I have a part-time job that offers me a paycheck every two weeks,
tips after every shift,
and most importantly the ability to pay for things I have an interest in. 

Some days I feel bored.
Some days I feel busy.
I try to live everyday separately, 
but it's hard not to think about or hope for the future.  
It's difficult not to think of the past and wish you could relive a moment over and over again.  
But ultimately, I am thankful for everything I've experienced, and 
I can't wait to LIVE everyday for the rest of my life.

It's hard to do when thinking about your dreams.

It seems pointless when hanging out with your best friends, prank-chatting some guy into believing hilarious fibs.

It seems like a waste of time when talking to the boy you can't stop thinking about.

It's so crucial to our health to sleep 8-10 hours a day.  But, imagine what we could do if we didn't have to sleep.

live with no regret

"In the end, 
we only regret the chances we didn't take,
the relationships we were afraid to have,
and the decisions we waited to long to make"
