I love this beautiful girl. Sometimes people come into your life you just know will always be a part of you even even if they have to move on at some point. This pretty girl weaseled her way into our hearts and is now an extension of our family. She wrote this beautiful thought and sent it to me and when I asked her why she wrote it she said something I think we can ALL relate to!
“thinking about college and wondering if its worth it to be here for 4 years hating it when I can be out just simply doing what makes me happy. Going new places. Doing new things. Not letting money be an issue. Living minimal and being happy with life without trying to “make a living” I read something the other day that said never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. And even though I can find so many great things in my life here every day. I want to find new great things.”
Written by Tina Hickman
Every time I go someplace old,
I find something new.
It makes me want to stay
Stay with my routine
the always changing beauty
of my own world.
Watch the growth of life around me,
with whatever mood is shaping my soul.
Yet what if my soul can only grow if I move?
My heart grows weary of only knowing my own world
It makes me want to go.
Keep going to find new beauty
around every corner
Then leaving it,
onto the next mountain side
or valley view
Exploring new rivers and seas,
fishing to feed my soul off the world
of everyone around me.
I want to split my body into a million pieces
and let them soak up EVERY scene.
Being here but everywhere.
Because it’s impossible to ignore
the beauty around me
and easy to imagine
the beauty around others.
