From the high gas prices, to the two classes I scored for fall semester, and even the life crisis that surround us as I get older I begin to realize that life can get hard and that as time passes by we are no longer the kids we once were. I remember being in high school and saying to myself at times “I cant wait till I’m 18 and can move out” “I cant wait till I go to college and get a degree to be making more money”. However one phrase I remember the most is… ” Life will be so much easier when I’m older and have self control of my own life”. That time is here and I have come to realize that life is nothing what I thought it would be, time has made me realize that turning 18 years old is not “becoming an adult”. We do not grow until we hit our mid twenties and life does not take affect on us until our minds begin to mature and we come to conclusion that we have always had self control of our lives. We just need to want to succeed and improve our way of living. For some less than others life after high school has been a piece of cake and for us others it has been a way of opening our eyes to realize that nothing ever goes as planned, and that the obstacles that life throws at us are just there to test our faith to see how much we truly believe in our dreams and desires. Everything we deal with as we age from financial issues, to family issues, to mid life crisis, and things not going as planned are just situations that test our faith to see how much we can handle and how far are we willing to go to accomplish what we want the most. I’ve come to realize that life may not be a big paradise dream and I know that as I get older I will continue to come across obstacles that may make me feel like I will never accomplish my goals. However, the key to life or at least from my perspective is to continue to push and never give up; always remember you have self control of your own destiny.
Continue to enjoy the life you have been privilege to live.
