What happened to the ripped jeans, Hollister sweatshirt wearing, small town girl. How did I get here in this big ole city, being all adult like.
Where did the time go?
It's crazy how fast life can take us and change us. One minute were here and the next thing you know it's 5 years later and you are all grown up!
I remember growing up in a town where everyone knew my name, and here I am in a city big enough to hold 4 of my towns, easily.
I remember spending my paychecks on shopping trips with my friends, not bills on bills on bills.
I remember when my biggest fear was failing a test, not worrying about not only myself my my mini family.
I remember growing up never locking the doors, and always welcoming friends and neighbors in to our homes, now I am nervous about everyone I meet.
Being young, and naive is one of the greatest things we can experience. We look at the world in such a way that we don't know the bad that surrounds us and we always look for the good in people. I find myself second guessing people's intentions, and trying to read beyond their outside. I don't completely turn my back to people because I don't trust easily.
I remember always being told "don't rush growing up" "be a kid as long as you can" and there is not a day that goes by that I believe that is the best advice I ever received. Even though growing up, living on your own and starting the life you have always dreamed of is a blast, nothing ever beats being a kid.
