It’s interesting to think about how one day, in 50 years, we’re going to look at these insignificant times in our lives and just laugh. I’ll say:
“Remember that time my heart got broken? I thought it was the end of the world! If only you knew where you’d be right now.”
“Remember when that guy tried to steal my undies?”
– Wait, wait. I’m actually laughing about that now.
“Remember when I didn’t know what I was going to be doing with my life or where I was going to be?”
I think about it all the time. How one day, I’m going to have this entirely different outlook on life. I’ll still be the same old Lara, just with a more crystallized intelligence. I already feel a certain kind of wisdom I didn’t have a few years ago. Our minds become such powerful tools if we let them grow intellectually and spiritually. We start to know ourselves better. I remember being 14 and not knowing who I was at all. Hell, I remember being 18 and not knowing who I was, then either. But now, at 25, I’m starting to see a more clear picture of the person I’m becoming.
And most importantly, destined for greatness.
I don’t think it’s conceded to think of yourself so highly. I think it’s empowering. I’m most certainly not perfect-and I have a lot more to learn. But since I’ve blindly crept into adulthood, I’ve recognized my potential.
Sometimes getting older scares me. Sometimes I really wish I could just stay in these moments forever. But I know there’s more. At 25, our being has barely scratched the surface of living. And I kind of can’t wait to delve in. Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen because if you do, something most certainly will.
