2015 is coming to an end and what has changed? Not much right now, considering I am typing away at my computer while curled up on my couch watching One Tree Hill in my pajamas.
Despite my feelings towards fictitious characters on unrealistic television shows, however, a lot has changed (even in the past three months in which I have written).
Somebody told me that this is the place where everything’s better and everything’s safe.
This One Tree Hill quote hit the spot for me today. We all need that sense of safety. We all need that feeling of security and comfort and belonging. Once you find it, then you are set. You realize that you are alive and well and you are where you are supposed to be. There will be obstacles brought to you, but you wouldn’t want to go through them anywhere else. There will be arguments and trials with those in which you are surrounded by, but you wouldn’t want them to be with any other being.
This is the place where everything’s better and everything’s safe. My home. My family. My friends. I enjoy basking in their presence. Even when they are gone for the day, I rest easy in knowing that they will come home to me in just a few hours. I enjoy eating at different restaurants with them and exploring new hiking trails with them and rolling through the holidays with them. I enjoy living this life with them by my side at this very place and at this very moment.
A lot has changed (even in the past three months in which I have written). My assurance is certain in where I am and where I belong. My heart belongs to a few things in which I am surrounded by, and this makes every single thing in which I am doing in my life completely worth it. One more semester, and I graduate college. One more year, and I graduate with a Masters degree. This life doesn’t slow down or pause for anybody, so you might as well find that place or that person to help you feel that sense of safety and security that you are longing for to help you move through this rapid life.
