When I was younger...

When I was a little girl and people always asked what you wanted to be when you grow up there was always familiar answers like an Astronaut or a Cowboy. I always responded with the answer nurse... That was until I reached double figures of 10 and realized I disliked blood and any painful injuries! 

Then when you reach 16 and 18 these questions occur again because you've done GCSE's or A Level then you realize that your young and have no idea or when you do know, most people end up changing their minds... At this age I wanted to go in to acting or musical theatre.

Then you graduate and people ask the same again. What do you plan to do with the rest of your life... Truth be told I don't actually know! I regret giving up on musical theatre because I love it... But I have photography and a love for animals in my life. If I didn't have that in my life. Truthfully...I'd be completely lost. If someone knows of any jobs that involve all three let me know! But the truth is you don't know have to know what you want to do. Just find something that makes you happy and something that you love.

The saddest part of being young and naive to being all grown up is realizing that it's hard to follow your dreams. I haven't lost the madness and random inspirations you get from being a child... I guess that's a good thing if I want to one day work for my dream company, Pixar. 

When your a child, you spend 5 minutes with someone and their instantly your best friends. But once you grow up and make your true friends for life and you don't live down the road from them or see them everyday, you really miss them. If I win the lottery, that's the first thing I would fix! 

At the age of 16, even at 18,19, I never truly understood the meaning of Carpe Diem. Seize the day. But at 21, I completely understand. If we don't cherish some moments in our life, we can move on and never be effected by them. But there are definitely people and places that will always live with you. They'll even crack you up in the middle of the day when you think of funny ones. Because if we don't appreciate the special moments or people, the world would be a miserable place.

You don't know what you've got until it's gone... This might be true. But! That doesn't mean we don't have the power to change it!
Learn to love, be strong and smile. Live your dreams. And if you start getting hysterics for no reason, just remember it's the best form of medicine.
