today is taylor's last "real day" of high school! next week she has a few finals, then after that will come her official graduation, but today she must be feeling that mixed bag of "omg! it is really over!" feelings. i remember so wanting to graduate, but i was that weird kid who kind of loved high school. i had lots of good friends, and teachers i really liked, so seeing it all end was so final for me and i missed it. i still do. i told you i was weird.
i saw this quote and wanted to pass it along. i especially love the line i placed in bold....
"i will not die an unlived life.
i will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
i will choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid, more accessible,
to loosen my heart until it becomes… a wing, a torch, a promise.
i choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom, + that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
