14th Time's the Charm

This 14th year of my life has been the best.
And I'm thanking you for it.

I've heard from a lot of people that turning 15 marks a beautiful and new beginning in your life.

Why so?

Because five years have passed from the age of ten - the age at which you were still considered a child. Curious and inquisitive about the world you lived in - everything just had to be 'fun'. 

And now, you're on the verge of turning 15 with another five years ahead in which you continue discovering the world and opening your eyes up to more truths about life.

To say "I'm excited" would be a lie. 

To say "I don't really care" would be a lie too.

I want to take life as it comes. I don't want to set any expectations of my future but at the same time, that doesn't stop me from dreaming. Dreaming is what makes me be the person I am. But I won't set my hopes too high on these next five years.

But there is one thing I'll certainly miss about being 14...

My 14th year of life has possibly been the best. I re-discovered who I am and who I want to be. My faith was once again restored after along time of doubt and distance. And I made beautiful friends who will never be forgotten.

And so this piece is dedicated to those people who have made the 14th year of my life truly remarkable. I don't know what the 15th holds in store but whatever it is, I'm ready to take it on.

But here's a little something to remember of my journey in my 14th year. And I am sharing it with you. 

The End
