these past few weeks, my head + heart have been flooded with memories of long ago. it seems i have this uncanny ability to remember the smallest of details from back then. i love the details. but it is also proving to be painful, too, to re-live all of those precious moments and realize they are so far away from where i am right now.
i'm awestruck by the fact that it's been 8 years since i graduated high school.
the girl i was back then looks much different than the girl i am today. sure, lots of her is the same, but as time passes and things change and we endure loss, i think it is inevitable we are going to come out of those experiences a bit different.
i'm finding it's so easy to get caught up in the what-ifs. to replay scenarios over and over and to wonder how or if things could have turned out differently.
i do take comfort in knowing that i am exactly where i should be right now, according to God's plan. that everything in my life has happened because it was supposed to happen.
and i'm remembering to trust.
