While looking through old photos I came across this beauty. I love flowers whether I draw or take pictures of them. They symbolize so much and I started wondering why. I realized that flowers are like people. Before you think I'm just plain weird, hear me out. When they blossom they are so beautiful. But when the petals start to fall, you notice the flaws that come with being a flower. That's exactly how people are. Human beings are the most beautiful "species" out there. If you take offense I apologize, this is not meant to be an insult. What I'm trying to say is that we're all unique and different. But just like the falling petals, we experience downfalls too. I feel that's when we are at our most vulnerable point in life. Just like flowers we grow and we go through evolution.
So many things have happened and it's making me reflect on my life as a person. Although this world is filled with negativity and darkness, but there is a "light at the end of the tunnel". Life is so precious and should not be taken for granted. Instead of looking at the negative things in life, I should start appreciating the positive things more. I want to life to the fullest, enjoying my family and the friends I've made along the way. I guess this is me trying to look at the bigger picture. You know looking outside of the box and being more open minded to the new things. Well I struggle with this so it's going to take me some time to do this. But like I've said before, I'm a work in progress and I for one am not perfect.
I'm afraid of change and that's something I have to get use too. Life is constantly evolving whether I like it or not. So instead of fighting it I'm going to try and embrace it. I'm growing up and it's mind blowing to me, if I'm being honest. I remember being five years old again. Whether I like it or not I'm an adult no matter what. But there isn't really a guide to prepare you. Although you learn at a young age, whether it's at home or school, you don't have the slightest clue once you get out there. We all go through different experiences and challenges but, our hurt and pain are very similar. I'm on a journey of self discovery and it's been quite the experience. I've learned a lot, so I guess that's how being an adults works.
I'm starting to look at life differently because not all of is bad. Looking at life differently means opening up and letting go. Letting go of the negativity that's around and surrounding yourself with positive vibes. I've learned that you can't please everyone and someone will always have something to say. You can't worry about them. You can't change anyone else but yourself. Do what makes you happy and what puts a smile on your face. Whether you want to be a novelist, firefighter, chef, or whatever. Follow your dreams and surround yourself with supportive people! That's one of the most important things. I don't know where I'm going with this but, I feel better. Life is something that should be cherished and appreciated!
