We are always changing, and growing, and learning. And sometimes we have to digress and mourn our past selves in order to feel okay with life’s slingshot shooting us forward.
How we all wish we could have a time machine to go back to when our parents made us lunch after a long morning of playing outside on a warm summer day. Or the times when you would curl up to them when there was a thunderstorm. As much as it hurts to know we can never go back, it’s important to remember in a way that we can. We can always access those memories when we want to, but right here and right now is the time to make new ones.
1. “Don’t be that girl.”
7. When you realize your parents can’t protect you from everything, and that they are just as human as you are.
I’m not ready to be anything else just yet.
One day you will wish you could go to bed at 8:30, so don’t fight me when I try and make you sleep.
