anyway. i find it absolutely beautiful to see people doing what makes them happy. it's obviously their passion and the fact that they're following it is awesome. it hurts my heart when i see people who aren't pursuing what they love... or they're not where they want to be... or in a relationship that they don't necessarily want to be in all the time... or being someone who they know they're not. but i guarantee you that at least one of these examples rings true for everyone at some point in life. it's true for me... and i am just realizing this now. oops.
i, personally, have figured out a whole lot in the last year. and i'm still trying to sort it all, but i'm finally learning that this is my very own life. i get to do what i want with it. not in a "i'm my own person and old enough to do what i want no matter what anyone tells me" kind of way... in a "i have one life and i shouldn't take anything for granted," kind of way.
and i totally get being scared or realistic, but we should all be doing what we love, and surrounding ourselves with the people that we love and love us. seriously, stop wasting time. follow your own frikin' heart. do what makes you happy.
obviously everything i ever say is always easier said than done... this i know. (and i also need to listen to myself) but why would we NOT want what makes ourselves happy? if you don't know what makes you happy, then figure it out. ya might as well, right?
ps. rainy days are actually my favorite. mmm.
