A New Path

If you thought a year ago where you would be a year from then, could you imagine your life today? Think about it. Think really hard. A year ago, did you really think you would be doing what you would be doing today? Living how you would be living today? Feeling how you would be feeling? Friends with all the same people? Suffering through the pain of death throughout the year?

A lot happens in a year. It's crazy to think about. I'm sure nobody truly thinks about the 365 days, 525,600 minutes or 31,536,000 seconds. Shit happens and joyous occasions happen. Life is like a roller coaster. Ups and down, tears and smiles. During a year, you grow as a person and learn each day about yourself and others, good and bad. Some people walk out of your life while others walk in. It's the choices that you make that allow creating a new path or staying on the path you're already on.

Where do you think you'll be six months from now? How about two months from now? What I know is that I never imagined a year ago that I would be where I am today. Life is what you make of it. Enjoy every second and embrace it.
