For me, 2016 has been incredibly fast, demanding, & full of accomplishments I could only dream of the year before. I never thought any of these things would happen within a mere year. And one of the best decisions was definitely, taking a gap year.
Finishing high school is such a great accomplishment, but before you’re out the door you’re bombarded with college applications & constantly pressured to jump right into college after high school.
How ridiculous it feels to be 18.
I think it’s wonderful the fact that I can benefit from other people’s experiences & the lessons they have learned over the years.
I find myself reminding them daily because life is motion & change but the experiences & lessons remain
October has been pretty busy & has just flown by!
What I love about those rainy autumn days is walking through the fallen leaves, sun rays, embracing the smell of the wood & thinking about life. However, autumn is slowly coming to an end – & also 2016. But that’s insane, like wasn’t it April just a few days ago?
So I’ve used these lovely walks to think a little bit about the month/year so far & the good moments in this Autumn x
I’ve always been a shy person. It’s something that has been a big part of my personality since childhood. Even though I’ve come a long way over these past years & I improved a lot, it’s still something that I deal with sometimes.
Of course, I am not going to become a social butterfly overnight – & I don’t even want to. But I challenge myself & I am learning to gradually step out of my comfort zone everyday.
