A letter for myself

Dear Awkwardgirl99

Let’s say you live until you’re 95. I don’t know what the average is, but oh well. Let’s just IMAGINE that you live until you’re 95 years old. There’s 365 days in a year. Therefore, in your 95 years in this world, you’ll have lived about 34 675 days. Seems like a lousy amount of time, right? Pretty frightening, right?

34 675 days. 832 200 hours. 49 932 000 minutes. By the time you reach 18 years old, there will only be 28 105 days left. 674 520 hours. 40 471 200 minutes. You know how fast time goes by. Life really is short, so you shouldn’t go around being scared of anything. You also shouldn’t disconnect from life, as you know you’ve done plenty of times before. Sure, it makes many things much easier for you, but then again, it doesn’t really. Because when that little bubble of yours pops, everything will seem overwhelming. Just, don’t get into that bubble; you know you’ll regret it.

Although life is so short, it also is long. You just embarrassed yourself? Everyone will have forgotten it within 1 hour, most likely, if not less. You feel worried about something? There is no reason to worry, because worrying isn’t going to solve anything. However, you know what solves extremely many things? TIME. And life is just that. Time. Life is time. Time is life. Life consists of time, and time consists of whatever you choose to fill YOUR time with. Do not care so much. However, don’t let of go of all your cares.

Life is difficult. So many things to remember, so many things to think about. It’s like golfing. There are so many things to think about, so many things you should do just right in order to hit the ball far. But, when you think about all those things, you will most likely fail. You must let go a little, and everything will go just fine. Mostly. As long as you don’t let go TOO much. Then you will fail as well.

So, my point here is, don’t worry. Just be yourself and think positive thoughts, and I’m sure you’ll do excellent in the rest of your life, just as you’ve mostly done until now.

I hope you feel better after reading this, because I felt much better after writing it.
