I told my mom I was going to Laguna to do some homework at the Starbucks there.
I did actually get some homework done, for about an hour.
I've had a lot on my mind so I just left and started driving South down PCH. Oh boy how I love PCH.
I blasted my favorite music.
I was carefree.
I pulled over somewhere near San Clemente and I played "Forever Young" on a loop. It hit me, and I mean reallllly hit me, that I am WAY too young to be so unhappy and stressed. I realize that sounds cliche, but it's so true. The world is so beautiful and there are so many things I have yet to encounter and experience. The truth is, people will always disappoint me and there will always be upsets in life. But life is a serious of ups and downs and that's the fun of it. If we didn't have our personal downs, then we would have nothing to compare the ups to. Life is about balance. I need balance in my life. I need to accept others flaws and more importantly I need to accept my own. I can't be perfect no matter how hard I try. The only thing I can control is how I react to what life throws at me and whether or not I make the best of every situation.
Here's a selfie.
love love love these glasses by the way.
