Is it just me or when I was 18, I honestly thought 10 years later my life would really be different. When I was 18 life was much more relaxed, I thought I was going to be friends with the people I loved at that time, and I thought my future self would be very different.
Isn’t it funny though when you think back on life…To me, being 18 was only about 2 or 3 years ago NOT 10 YEARS!!!!!
I thought that my friendship group at the time wouldn’t change. I didn’t think we would drift apart due to location, work commitments, relationships and life happening. I wouldn’t have thought that all those nights having an amazing time, those days taking silly photos were to just turn into memories.
I know people say life happens, but honestly it does. Sometimes we cannot help what happens in life and sometimes we chose to disband.
We work out as to who we are, who we want to be and where we want to go.
As much as I loved being 18, I prefer me now. I prefer my stronger attitude, my respect and self confidence, my beliefs and the people I have chosen to be around.
I would say to any 18 year old out there, live life now. Seriously take as many photos as you can, it doesn’t matter if you look silly – you’re building memories.
Your future self will thank you.
