As I count the hours before I leave this familiar town where I have spent 18 years of my life I begin to wonder where time has gone. Whenever looking back at an era of your life, time always seems to escape us. I don't think we realize the advantages we have in our lives until you take a step back and observe from a distance. Whenever I am making memories I never seem to realize the situation I am in until days, weeks, months, years later. I fail at enjoying every moment that comes my way and always easily swept by the motion of life. Cherish the ones you love and never forget the position you are in. You are blessed whether or not you want to realize it.
As I leave this town for a new adventure I will treasure each moment I had. Whether it's as simple as walking around a lake, I will never forget how blessed I have been. I will remind myself to remember every blessing and to enjoy every moment that I am. As cliche as it sounds: You don't realize what you have until it's gone.
Thanks to all my family and friends who have gotten me to this spot. I couldn't have done it without you. I love you all deeply and can't wait to share (blog) about all my "new" memories! Time is ticking...appreciate all your memories and enjoy life.
