Growing up

I remember when I was younger and everyone wanted to grow up so quickly. "I can't wait until I turn 18, I'll  be able to do to do this and that", "I can't wait to get a job, and spend my own money"," I can't wait to get my own apartment and get out of here", "I can't wait until I get a bf/gf" and the list goes on, and on... Now, as I become older, all I can say is, growing up is not all its ramped up to be. Paying bills, buying groceries, and even doing  your own laundry can be so tedious. My advice:
  • enjoy being young and carefree while you can (hang out with friends, create memorable events, and  discover new hobbies and what you love doing)
  • appreciate your parents/guardians -they have more insight and experience no matter how annoying they can be, you can still learn something from them

    Making time for those you love.

    I am a firm believer in if you truly care about someone or something, you will make time for them/it period. There are no excuses, especially when we do not control time nor the things that occur in our lives. Even if its as brief as a 10 minute phone call or a conversation about something completely random, sometimes its just the thought that matters. These little moments often add to great memories, funny insiders and make for great stories. It is  the moment  we spend time doing the things we love and with the people we love that help make us feel complete.I challenge you to call, or spend time with someone whom you have not spent time with in a while.
