Thank You, Life.

By @annieenglish

I feel so grateful. I have the best friends I could ever ask for and I have the healthiest relationships I’ve ever had. I’ve learned to take things slower and go one day at a time, my birthday is in 5 days and I’m feeling so thankful for my family and for my friends and for my life. I’ve done things in the last 15 years that some people are never going to be fortunate enough to experience in their whole lives. I’ve been to Paris, a city that changes lives. I’ve seen the Mona Lisa and Stonehenge, age old wonders. I’ve heard some of the best music live. There are so many amazing things about life that we all have to look forward too. Music, people, love, movement, adventures. There’s so much I want to do in my life, but I’m okay where I’m at right now. Just a 15 year old teenager who is beyond lucky. I genuinely don’t know what I did to deserve the people in my life. Bailey, the only person in this world who understands me and loves me for who I am. Ranya, the most pure friend in the world, she will always be here for me by my side through anything. Hunter, a boy who makes me so so so happy. It’s a funny thing with Hunter because he’s the first healthy romantic relationship I’ve had. I’m happy, but I don’t depend on him for happiness, which is an amazing thing. I have so many great things going for me and I am so lucky to be alive. I just want to say thank you to my parents, for loving me know matter what. For loving me through all my ups and downs, loving me through my ********. Thank you to God, if you’re listening, you did good, it’s an amazing world out there. Thank you to Bailey, for changing my life, I wouldn’t get through my days without you, you make me who I am. I love you. Thank you to ballet, for shaping me into the person I’ve become and showing me the person I’d like to be. Thank you life, in my eyes, your purpose is so simple. Live, experience, love, adventure, cry, laugh, sing, run, explore. Your purpose is to live. Thank you life.
