Again, just a brief reminder that everyone linking is pouring their hearts out and we should all be respectful in our comments. 😉
When I was in high school and college, I kept journals. I wrote down all the things that were happening and my thoughts on life. Stop laughing.
When I was packing to move away from home for my first teaching job, I actually threw out my high school journals. If I remember correctly, it was a dramatic gesture on my part that I was leaving the past behind me. Or my behind in the past. Whichever. Thank you, Lion King.
But, I kept my college journal.
Most of it is pure drivel. And I can see now, looking back, how I should have done things differently. How plain it is to see now. I want to go back in time and say to myself “Reread what you just wrote and THINK about it!”
Mostly, it was good for a few laughs at myself as I skimmed it the other night.
But, I found this entry, written on May 15, 1999, when I was a senior in college, that is my 21 year-old self pouring her heart out. And so, that’s what I’m sharing with you today. Unedited- except for the spacing. Because no one want to read a big block of text.
I’m writing this not because I’m in an especially good mood or even an especially bad one.
I’m writing for later times, when I will feel hopeless.
Because now, I have hope.
I don’t know what the future holds.
I have no idea how my life will change.
But, I take comfort in the fact that it will change.
That I can never predict what will happen, but that everything happens for a reason.
What seems impossible today will seem silly later.
I have to have confidence in myself and faith that everything will be alright.
Because things can always get better.
I need to remember to have hope.
