….is this too much to ask? :(
People often tell me now that I am graduating that the future is scary. But is it really? I mean, high school was all right don’t get me wrong, but it completely did not live up to the expectations I had. I regret to say I am at a point where I just want to leave and move on from it. I am sick of being in the same enviornment 5 days of week. I have had so many dissapointments this year that I just don’t feel like sticking around. Yes the future in unpredictable but its a new chapter of my life that I am ready to embrace? Am I scared? The only thing I am scared of is making the same mistakes I did in high school and having regrets.

It’s funny how things change over time. You think you know someone, you think that they will always stick around. However, I’ve learned to give up on that theory. I remember when I was very young there was a Guru-ji who told me “you know why it’s called Friend? It is because they FRI you in the END.”
As a kid I dismissed this thought, with the mind set that the friends I had in grade 4 were going to be there forever. Now, finishing my last year of high school, I have come to realize that he was right. However, a true friend, is one who you see as a family member, a brother or a sister. Those friends, are ones that stick around and I am grateful for them in my life.

"A lamp kept on mound illumines the area; if kept in a pit, it is as if it were not. A virtue that is practised is a lamp that shines for all; good thoughts and good deeds have a way of influencing others. The gems of wisdom, the light of intuitive experience should not be kept away from fellow - men. They have to be shared, even at the cost of one’s life. That was the lesson Jesus taught and symbolised."
- Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba (via spiritual-awakening)
