It Is Here

Happy Free-Thinking Friday!

I wrote the post you’re about to read 7 days ago, exactly 1 day before I graduated from college. In all honesty, it wasn’t the best weekend of my life. I’d probably classify it as top ten, but I hadn’t slept for more than 4 hours (each night) in over a week and I was overwhelmed with all of the things that I had to do for the weekend. I think staying positive and sharing uplifting messages is a very important mission that we all must align ourselves with. However, I believe it’s even more important to be yourself and express the things that are on your heart when you feel the desire to do so. My life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, there are moments when I feel anxious and overwhelmed…one of those moments happened to be my graduation weekend. So here is an honest post, written by an honest girl who just wants to share her experiences with the world. I’m here to share the good, the bad and the ugly. 

I wrote a poem entitled “It Is Here” but it is rather somber so I thought I’d preface it with this:

I am excited for graduation. I am overwhelmed with joy. I am amazed at the beautiful people I’ve been able to meet and cultivate relationships with. I am so grateful for everyone who is supporting me and has supported me for the past 4 years. I could not have done it without the constant love and support of those around me. My parents have been an amazing support system to me. They’ve supported me emotionally, spiritually & financially.

My brother deserves a round of applause. He’s a huge reason I keep pushing forward. He’s such an inspiration & such an amazing sibling. I am extremely grateful for the fact that he pushes me to be better and uses his talents to inspire me to redefine my ‘best’.

I could keep going but I’ll save that for a later post. Now, I hope you enjoy this somber poem:

It is Here

It is here.

It is here.

It.

Is.

Here.

It is here and I’m doing my best to remind myself that this will be an amazing weekend.

It is here and my main goal is to stay awake.

It is here and I’m trying to stay positive

Because it is here.

It is here.

It is here.

“This is a happy moment”, I hear them say.

But I have yet to learn how to allow the assertions of others to turn my crooked frown into a smile.

Maybe it’s the sleep deprivation,

Since I’ve been waking up before the sun every morning.

There’s so much to do.

But it is here.

It is here.

It is here.

I just hope I can stay awake long enough to experience it.

Happy Free-Thinking Friday everyone!! Enjoy your weekend and never be ashamed to be unapologetically yourself even if it isn’t always pretty.
