This is the story of a girl, who cried a river and drowned the whole world...I'm learning to fly.
Today I turn 22...This year has been great and at the same time devastating. Maybe it is because I am getting older, but I can not get excited about it being my birthday. Its just another day to pretend that things aren't going to hell with the devil carrying the hand basket himself.
I suppose I just need to look back at all the good things that happened to me and for me in my 21 st year and try and look past the bad. No matter how much it hurts, and will hurt for a long time.
The other day I was perusing through some fiction on this site and saw something in a user picture that really struck me. It said: "Don't take life too seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway." I think that this is a great mentality to have and I am going to try and embody it.
This year, the 22nd year of my time in this crazy messed up world, I only want one thing; happiness. Not just for myself; I am not as selfish as all that. But for those I love. Tonight when I blow out the candles, that is what I will wish for.
Happy Birthday A; may God rest upon your pillow tonight and the road always rise up to meet you.
