The other day when I was at the park with my nephew and daughter, there were these two teens, they were probably about sixteen/seventeen and they were sitting on the swings chatting. I overheard them talking about their grades and a party they went to and it got me feeling nostalgic and I started to reminisce back to when I was that age. Though I would say I’m my happiest right now, it kinda sent my head into a spin that those care-free days are over! The days where I could drink and party without feeling like i’m dying the next day. Eating rubbish food because ignorance was bliss back then and not feeling like I had any real sense of responsibility. It’s an incredible time in some ways and yes that age has a lot of pitfalls too but that’s not what I’m talking about today. This situation has prompted me to do my best to make sure Nova-Rose (my daughter) will embrace not only her teenage years but every stage of her life because time really does seem to fly by. Of course her safety will always be paramount to both her father and me but I also want her to live as carefree for as long as she can.
Even though those years were fun, I truly am so happy with where I’m at right now and with turning thirty in July, I want to continue my path on worrying less and trying my best to just be in the prestent moment and to follow through with the things that bring me happiness. It can be so easy to find a million reasons why we shouldn’t do something but maybe it would be best to not always think so hard and instead remember the spontaneity we would have when we were teens and simply go with our hearts and what we believe will elevate our lives.
Sending you love love and light,
