Tonight it is time to say goodbye to my childhood, my youth, my teens, the years that taught me so much and shaped me into the person I am today and enter “adulthood”. It is honestly a bitter sweet feeling.Part of me wants to say “hey I am an adult now” and part of me wants to stay a child forever. Its not like I am not ready to grow up, because over this past year I have felt I have grown up so much. It has to do more with the thought of growing up scares me. It’s weird to think that the next few years of my life - the people i have around me- will define my future - the rest of my life. I am so blessed that I have the friends and family around me to lean on, but there is one part of growing up that you have to do on your own. Its finally time to move forward without looking back. So tonight in the hours leading to 12:00 I will remember the good times, forget the bad times and brace myself for the next new chapter in my life.
“May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young”—Bob Dylan
