Sometimes a moment hits you, a real true moment of ultimate bliss. You can look around and be one hundred percent comfortable with yourself and your surroundings. You aren’t dwelling on the past, or worrying about the future. You are here. In the moment. You feel it, and it feels you back.
These are the moments I live for. I take a step back from everything around me, and in that moment, all is perfect. There is a balance in the universe that makes everything just about perfect.
I just read this quote that really stuck out to me. “Every single choice you have ever made in your life has brought you to this exact moment, reading this exact sentence.” So powerful, and so true. I believe in the idea that “everything happens for a reason”, and if you don’t know why- you will find out eventually.
I was pondering back on a moment around a year ago, while I was supposed to be focusing on my English lecture. I was walking during a break in my high school with my best friend, talking (more like analyzing) about the future. The acceptance letters were rolling in, and we felt like the last two who had yet to hear from anywhere. She was worried about getting into prestigious art schools, while I was worried about facing the fact I wouldn’t be attending a university. I had doubted myself and scoffed when she stated that I will for sure get in.
Months later, I step into the future to my current moment, where everything seems to have added up- as I’m typing this from my dorm bed in the college that seems to have been made for me. I look around, and I feel like everything right now is just about perfect. I can hear the wind blow onto my pristinely comfortable bed (equipped with a three-inch foam topper to ensure a good nights sleep). I think about my friends and their college experiences, drastically different from mine, but just about perfect for them.
I like to think it all adds up to be just about perfect, xoxo
