Leaps of faith.

Day 23: Things you've learned that school won't teach you.

I didn't learn this from the books...

some of the people you thought you'd always have in your life... will disappear. But some people you never imagined to be in your corner, will be... without fail. 

life is hard sometimes. Pushes you to the brink every once in awhile, but with those people I mentioned above - you'll get through it. 

sometimes... the only thing in the world that can calm your soul is good country song. 

that it's okay to not be the cool kid. Be the dork, be passionate about something, be in love with something so much that you become a fashion/sewing nerd. {Or whatever your poison is.}

coffee will become a daily necessity in your twenties. Or red bull. 

{This picture has nothing to do with this post. He's just cute.}
your family will become your best friends. The parents you fought with in high school, the brother and cousins you never had commonalities with... they become your soul. They become those people who without fail, are always in your corner. 

that falling in love is nothing like the fairy tales you watched last weekend growing up. Love is insanely beautiful and deeply depressing and every emotion in between. School doesn't teach you that...

that sometimes people will disagree with decisions you make. But in the end, they're your decisions to make and that's all you can go on. 

in general, life is made up of a series of leaps of faith. Because everything you do... from the moment you graduate from college, take your first big girl job, fall in love, make friends you weren't born with, dye your hair from dark brown to blonde, wear leopard print skinny jeans for the first time, hold you baby niece minutes after she is born... all those moments, and many, many other ones are all made on leaps of faith. The leap of faith that it's going to be okay... that it's going to work out how it should... that if nothing else, you'll learn immensely from this experience. 

Leaps of faith... you don't learn about those in school. 

Happy Thursday, beautiful! Hope you have a good one!

WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT KITTY FACE. I want to smooch it. Is that weird? Oh, I hope you don't think that was weird.

I love that you said life is made up a series of leaps of faith. That is so, so true.

Have I told you lately how glad I am that I found you? I think I have, but I'll say it again. I'm glad I found you!
