You are so young and so naive. You believe that life is the easiest thing in the world. You have great friends, a loving family and school is a piece of cake. Everything is like you want it to be and the worst thing is having to do the dishes and walk the dog. I wish that I could tell to appreciate your life so much more than you do. I wish I could tell you that before you know it everything will change. You will no longer be playing music, you will be done with school, you will move from your childhood home but the worst part is that you will lose friends and family.
Illness and many changes will become a big part of your life and will change you and your family forever. But don’t worry –you will get through it. Life will hurt and happiness will become something very distant but one day your smile will be genuine again.
Old friends will enter your life and everything will soon fall back in place. You will find someone who never fails to make you happy even on the cloudiest days and they will give you something to look forward to.
One day you will find yourself having once in a life time experiences, pushing boundaries and finding out who you really are and what your purpose in life is. So don’t worry Tess. Life was a dark place but no more. You will still have your grey cloudy days but now you are able to see how important the little things in life are.
Don’t ever give up or stop believing in yourself. Be proud of who you are. You are capable in doing so much more than you think.
