Your happiness is your happiness and yours alone.
I’m not scared of moving away from home.
I’m not scared of being on my own.
I’m not scared of being away from everything I know.
I’m not scared, because I know that whatever I jump into, I know I’ll swim right back up to the top. I’ve never felt this way before.
Of course I have my anxieties and nerves, but I feel okay. And that’s all you really can feel, I guess. Just okay with it all, because you know whatever happens you won’t drown - you can trust yourself enough to be able to swim.
The biggest thing I’ve probably learnt is that the same way life goes down, it goes right back up. You could have the worst day or things could be tedious and slow in life but these are the moments that are calm and still until the waves begin to form and you end up surfing on the best wave of your life and feel exhilarated. What I’m trying to say is unpredictable. You don’t know what will happen a week from now or a month. You simply don’t.
I’m not fearless, not just yet.
But I’m assured inside, which is as much as you can be. Everything’s changing. And somehow I’m okay with that. You are constantly growing and changing, and that’s a good thing. It’s scary, but good. Because the worst thing is allow yourself to be stunted in life than experience everything it has to offer in your limited time here.
Sometimes it’s the hardest thing to tell if you’re moving on or running away
