Life has not forgotten you.

Close my eyes, open them back up. Plan a new life, and then another one. All the same. And so very different.

You can spend your whole life preparing, and still never learn the most valuable lessons that only come with doing. Quit worrying that you aren't ready, worthy or qualified. You aren't, and you won't be until you're actively in the thick of it all. Jump in and get started already. You're in luck; the very best time for beginnings is now.

You must realize that something is happening to you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall.

The nine hour work day, the family problems, the best friend getting married. The chaos. The older brother who is a drug addict. The little brother who might just possibly be following in the same foot steps. The roots that are starting to show at the top of your head, the ruined mascara. The new black pants that just got dirty. The annoying customers. The mom who has lung cancer. The grandparents who try too much and who love with all of their hearts. The friends that have forgotten about you, the friends that you are trying not to forget about. The memories, the beauty. The things that you don't want to remember. Words. Sentences. Paragraphs, weeks and months. Years and lost friends. Life. Moving on. Getting somewhere. Making it, even if it was just barely making it.
