I know sometimes it may seem like things in the future don't matter because its not relevant at the moment and the future seems so far away, but the crazy thing is no one is guaranteed tomorrow.
I spent a lot of my time doing the same things over and over and never realized how much of my life I really was wasting. When your young and caught up in all the "fun" you never realize with every decision you make there's an action that follows, good or bad. I made a lot of dumb mistakes (we all do) hung around a lot of people who didn't have my best interest, made friends with people who weren't really my friends and dated all the wrong guys. I found myself day by day just going through the motions. It took the loss of some friends and the ending of relationships for me to realize I had to start doing things differently. But what? How do I just change? And how do I separate myself without feeling like I'm missing out?
