As of last Thursday night, I officially graduated from high school and am moving on to the next chapter of my life. Quick side note… I am so sorry I didn’t post for a while but I was too overwhelmed with things going on and I didn’t wanna post something sloppy just so I could post. Now if you feel uncomfortable when people get sort of deep and emotional, I recommend clicking away and going to one of my other posts…just an fyi 🙂
Sooooo, I don’t even know where to begin! High school was quite the ride for me but I loved every second of it….well almost every! My time in high school felt like it flew by! I say this a lot to people but I swear my sophomore and junior year were merged into one! High school was where I made some of the best memories but also lost things that I thought were important…looking back I know that they were toxic and it was all for the better. Each year had something different to offer making these some of the most unforgettable years of my life! I won’t bore you by going in depth with each year but I will talk about the two most important things that happened to me during my time in high school.
Through three of the four years I was lucky enough to have someone special by my side, someone who constantly lifted me up and made me smile no matter what was going on and I owe him the biggest thanks. Tyler and I started dating beginning of my sophomore year and since then he has been my rock. This boy has been there for me through everything and I am so unbelievably blessed! He has made me feel worthy and belonging and I can’t thank him enough for that. Now I’m not going to lie and say it has all been easy but the good times definitely overpower the harder times. When things get rough I just tell myself (usually after I’ve overreacted) that we are both growing up and changing and things aren’t always going to be the same as they were before. But I am so uber happy that I have someone like him by my side to experience all of this with so Tyler if you’re reading this…thank you for everything and I am so excited to see where the future takes us!
Now, although high school is about learning, there was one thing that high school taught me outside of the books and that was how to love myself and find happiness within. Throughout my life I had trouble with bullying, making friends, feeling excluded, etc. but it wasn’t until a year ago that I started to understand it all. Yes, I always had friends to hangout with and trust but I never felt like I was completely happy until I started turning all of the negatives into positives and taking a step a back to really take it all in. I’m definitely not perfect at this and sometimes have a hard time doing so but knowing this secret has improved my life incredibly! Once I found happiness within myself, I was able to embrace everything around me and live in the moment instead of constantly being anxious waiting for the next thing to happen.
Last thing I want to say is thank you to everyone who made some kind of impact on my life, not just regarding high school. Whether it was positive or negative, it has shaped me into who I am today and I could not be more happy with myself! To my family and close friends, there are no words to describe how appreciative I am! Heres to the next chapter of my life! xoxo
