Life gets in the way sometimes. There is simply nothing we can do to stop it. But, eventually life will settle back into place and you can carry on. Be you, do you, and love you. I am officially viewed as an adult and that scares me. Some days I'm lost while others I feel right in place.
Life is a little weird and confusing. One moment you're in high school. Next, you're graduating, saying goodbye to age-old friends. Tears are shed on the ride to your new life. It begins. Old love is lost and new love is found. Explorations happen and you find yourself. You get lost on the way but eventually you find your path again. You realize all these years you have been hiding pieces of yourself that have been itching to come out. Let them. Don't hold yourself back. No matter what others say--you do you.
If you realize your path is a different direction than what others want you to take, don't you dare step off that path. Or, like Bilbo and his crew, you will need elves to save you (and we all know earth is lacking in the elf department). Keep on keeping on, or you'll be even more lost. Take those sharp turns. Take that rocky path. Go ahead and take the darker, scarier option. Your path is meant for you and only you to decide. You will reach forks in that road, but it's up to you to decide what to do.
Here I am, at this awkward part of my life where I have to decide what I want to do, who I want to be, and where I want to go. I forgot how much art can help me do just that so I am coming back with a vengeance. I hope I actually start uploading often again, but even if I don't, I know that art is here for me when I need a way to weed through my thoughts and I will try to never forget that again.
Life is beautiful.
