This is it! This is the time to live my life, I have made the mistakes I should’ve learned from as a teenager, I consider myself to be an educated adult now. It’s time, time to live it out. I hope that I know what is wrong and what is right but I missed out on something so big as a teenager, taking risks! I am now twenty and I want to live life to the fullest. I spent most of my teen years planning my future, now that I have my head on straight and know my goals set I think its time to make it all happen. I have lived my whole life looking forward to having a family, a job, unconditional love...I can feel it coming into my life and I am overjoyed.
My parents are still controlling parts of my life, but I really believe that it is time to step my foot down. There are things I want to experience before I a have graduated, before I am married with kids. Things I want to experience with my friends and my family. I need to do things for myself so that when I am married with kids and so set on making them number one in my life, I can look back at my life and think, I lived the life I wanted to live with no regrets.
It’s time to travel, time to live in the woods for a couple days to rough it. It’s time to study, focus, so I can be successful. It’s time to serve, time to go to Africa. It’s time to live. It will soon be time to move out for a semester, live on my own for a bit to learn how difficult it really is. I find this so necessary, I think that I can live on my own but in the back of my head I really know that I depend on my parents so much. As much as I enjoy going out with my friends all the time I really do look forward to a home cooked egyptian meal. I enjoy cuddling up in bed with my parents and playing cards with them most summer nights. Sadly, this tradition is diminishing as the Egyptian elections have taken over our home. I stay out late to avoid listening to news anchors on the TV.
It’s time to take care of myself, I have lots of injuries that have not fully recovered from. It’s time to make healthier decisions for my future, it is time for change. There is no room to avoid surgeries for some childish fear of blood and needles. It is time to make a change for the better. This is the beginning of the rest of my life. I have lived two decades, I have made memories; I have learned and experienced a lot. I want more. I am hungry for change, for experiences, I want to move on with my life. Those people, those things holding me back from my dreams. Gone. This is it. This is my now.
