As I sit here and awkwardly attempt to avoid my coworker mourn the death of a loved one, it reminds me how finite life really is. It is unfortunate that it takes the loss of someone for something to work better, or for someone to see something in themselves that was always there. I am here to say this, live your life to the best of your ability. Do not fear the unknown. Go fast and hard into life like there is no tomorrow because honestly, it may not be. However, this manifest for you allow it to resonate loudly. Find the courage to talk to that special guy or that special lady. Go for that job that you think that you are not qualified for. Create something that you think that no one will see. This life that you live is your new Polaroid picture. The things that you make, the people that you touch are your framed photo. Those are the things that people will remember you. It does not matter if you do not get that job. It does not matter if that special lady or guy turns you down. You have the rest of your life to live and that life will have those moments of dread but more often than not there will be moments of triumph, joy, and happiness. Sometimes you need to get through the unknown and realize that's what it is: something you don't know. Getting past that state of the unknown is the first step.Making sure that you make the best of the knowledge that you acquire on the other side of the unknown is all that matters. Love yourself and FLOURISH every moment you have.
