Author's Note: Some quotes sum up the big points of life, and this happens to be one of them, that speaks out to everyone, especially people in middle school and high school who haven't figured this out, and choose to live their life stressing over everything little thing possible. These are some of the lessons I got out of this.
“There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.”
In some moments you just have to do something without even considering the effects that it will make, and the reason you do it is solely because it just feels right. A once in a lifetime moment, and it pains me to think that some people ignore them, to afraid to stray from the plan you have plotted out before you. Although, I agree its a good idea to plan ahead and certain scenarios, and have an idea of what you are doing in the future you can’t plan every minute of your life. Things will always come up unexpectedly, but you have to try to comprehend that “everything happens for a reason.” Take the movie, “Soul Surfer,” that’s based off a real-life true story. Bethany thought she was never going to be able to surf again when she survived a shark attack, and she asked again and again, “Why would this happen? How could this be God’s plan for me?” You can see that, though, good did come out of a terrible situation, and she ended up being a role model to many because she never gave up. The last thing I got out of this quote is that sometimes people will bring you down, and if they’ve been a long-time friend you can’t be afraid to let them go. Over the years friends will grow apart and new friends will come together it’s all part of our each individual path of life.
