Sorry I just needed some time for that to sync in.
You've probably already heard a million other people say this, but I can't believe how fast time passes. It's almost like the older you get, the faster time passes. Remember when you were young, and you had to wait in line for something, and it always felt like a whole DAY would pass before you'd finally get what you were waiting for and so you wished that time would move faster? Well congratulations, because you got what you wanted.
Be careful what you wish for.

May 7th, 2006 was a whole decade ago. I was eight years old. It's crazy to think about how much I dreamed of being a teenager and now my teenage years are almost over.
But the key is to stop thinking about the future so much that it consumes you and steals the time you do have left. This is cliché, but, you don't know how much time you have, so why waste your time thinking about how little time there is? I mean, you know that time passes by fast, so why the hell are you wasting that time crying about it? (If you are crying about it). DO SOMETHING.

It can be anything.

You know, it's really easy to just give up and let yourself decompose. I get it, it's tough just waking up in the morning and facing another day. But take it one day at a time, and you won't regret it. No one ever said that they regretted spending time with those they loved while they could've just gone to sleep early (most of the time).

Hey, it's not easy to live. But there's a reason you're still here. Even if you don't know what that reason is, just know that. You don't have to be religious to believe that.

? ? ? ? ? Days left. What're you going to do with them?

Your friend,

Alena
