It is crazy to think that I have already lived over sixteen full years, even though I have many more to come, (I hope). My days go faster and faster as years go by, even if it is a simple “at home” day with my family. As we get older, we will get jobs, create families, and have less time for the ones in our lives. Many think that the friends that you have now in school, you will not stay friends with as you grow up and grow apart. Whether that is true or not, I still believe that the ones you want to keep in your life, you can, no matter how fast our days go by. I also believe that it is important to cherish your friends and live in the moment, because this joyful age will not last forever. Before we know it, we will be in college or pursuing our own careers. You will most likely look back and miss these times of freedom and flexibility to do as you wish, for the most part. As we get older, we gain more responsibility and time passes even faster. I hope you all can see this as well and begin to enjoy your life. You will only be this young for so long.
Time passes too quickly; appreciate the moment you’re in, for you will never get that moment back.
