It’s funny how life seems to go by so slowly, then you turn and look and see that it’s passed in a blur. One day you’re twenty years old with hopes and dreams and your whole life ahead of you. Idealistic, enthusiastic, inspired. You know exactly what your future holds. Except it doesn’t turn out that way. It twists and turns in ways you never saw coming. Sometimes it’s better than you expected, sometimes not so much. If you persevere, you may find that through it all, though the best of your plans may have been cast aside, you still end up in a better place than you ever imagined. Life is funny that way. It can pass in a blur, but it allows you to freeze frame the important moments, to experience them over and over again in your mind. This is the true magic of life.
