Strange Thoughts


It's a strange thing when one day you realize that you really like your life. That might sound really awful, I don't mean that I didn't like my life before, it's just now I know that I do like it and I see how blessed I am. Nothing big has happened to change my view, and things haven't gotten wonderful all of a sudden, it's just I see things differently. Almost as a reader reading my life like it's a book and enjoying it. There are always things I would change if I could, but that's part of what makes life interesting. If life was perfect my story wouldn't be worth reading. If love was placed in my lap there would be no quest for it. If I lived in Europe I wouldn't get to dream about traveling there. If I never had to work for things I wouldn't appreciate them and I probably wouldn't get as far. So, you see, those are the things that make life interesting and good and romantic, to be able to dream of travel and love. The flaws make beauty precious and rare. Those are the thoughts that have brought about my change of view, and also the realization that I have the ability to make certain things the way I want them. I've been decorating my room, writing, listening to music, sewing, creating things, and surrounding myself with things that inspire me. I feel as if I could never run out of ideas and excitement. I just love it, I'm finally getting to use the part of me that's been stifled all of these past years of high school. Last year it took over my wardrobe but now it's taking over my life.
I am just so excited about this change and I can hardly wait to see what will come next.

Love,
Clara

Perfect words. Funny this is exactly how I have been feeling these past months. I think its that thing... stop waiting to be happy , just be happy now... etc. It comes in phases for me. I love the pics with this post too. Keep creating... x x

It is wonderful to come to that realization that everything is working just right. That's kind of how I feel with my senior year. It's like everything's finally fallen into place

My journey seems to have brought me to these very same conclusions- life really is magical but it's just a matter of changing one's perspective in being able to see it, your post reminded me of that :)
