Spring has already taught me so much about life this year. Around this time last year, I was about to graduate college, I was dating a girl I was serious about who was ready to move up to MO with me, and despite being so ready to move back to STL after 10 months of being back in SoFlo, I was all torn up about moving so far away from some of the people in my life.
And here I am, a year later: I chose a career path that is only vaguely related to my degree, but that I have excelled in.
That girl broke up with me out of the blue after I spent 4 hours in the freezing cold trying to talk things out, but being single has given me time and space for reflection, growth, and to reconnect with myself.
And one of my formerly closest friends from Florida started dating someone who tormented me as soon as I moved, then lied to me about it for 6 months, but I have met so many incredible people in my new home that it was easy enough to shrug off once the initial reaction passed.
Life doesn't always go as planned. People, places, and time periods come and go like days of the week, and whenever we lose or cut a branch off of our lives, it may hurt for a while, but we will always regrow, start anew, and bloom again.
I think we all go through phases and emotional states that represent the 4 seasons, and watching the world come back to life around me after the dreary dormancy of winter has inspired and energized me.
Life is incredible; drop the past and leave it there, embrace the present, and go forward in new growth for the future.
