Today is finally the day! I’m finally 17. I would just like to take this time to reflect on all I have learned, and what I am thankful for. I have been blessed with meeting and getting to know a lot of excellent people. I learned basically that it’s important to love yourself and learn that you cannot change anyone. You have to really just let go and to with the flow. Change is inevitable. I’m learning to finally accept all that I cannot change and love my life for exactly what it is. I’ve leaned that patience is a virtue that will get you very far in life. I think that if you truly wait, good things will come to you. It’s just important to speak positive things into the atmosphere. Stay positive. Remember that time heals all. Sometimes people exit and re-enter your life, and it’s all in divine order. You have to allow yourself to be open to the journey and open to experiences. I think it’s good and it’s time to just allow yourself to learn. It’s good to reflect on your past, it helps you move on. In addition to that, don’t overthink. There is a thin line between just thinking and overthinking. Don’t let your mind control your emotions. Others are not meant to control your emotions. You are the only one to control how you feel. Just remember to stay happy and learn from your past.
