Finding Happiness in Summer

Finding Happiness in Summer

People are always saying "you can't choose your family", I don't think that's true. Friends are the family that you chose. I'm a person that loves with all of my heart, I've learnt with age that not everyone deserves my friendship. The way I see it is, I have a finite amount of time on this earth so, the people I choose to spend my time with is actually really important. I don't want to waste my time with people that aren't bringing positive energy into my life. Maya Angelou says "when people show you who they are, listen the first time as they know themselves much better than you do". I think when you love someone, you need to take them for who they are and not what you want them to be, if not then move on.

I make it no secret that this year has been absolutely terrible for me. In April I was dreading summer, I thought my broken heart was going to ruin it and I was going to just be indoors on my own crying all day. Instead, I've had the best summer of my life. It started with some really awkward and horrible conversations, but it has all been worth it. I've been on beautiful trips with the people I love and danced and laughed and picnicked and ate luscious food. I've seen new places, lived new experiences and made friends with some pretty wonderful new people. In a dark twist, I probably wouldn't have become close to some of them if it hadn't have been for the terrible start to my year. I've been exploring on my own and getting comfortable in my own skin and my own company. Even though I miss my family so much, I've found strength in myself to keep the good times rolling.
