I graduate from college on May 12. A little over a month from now I won't live half a mile from my closest friends and I won't be a 3-minite car ride from campus. While I'm excited to complete the undergraduate chapter of my life, I'm struggling to find peace in the fact that I can and should live each moment to the fullest.
While I'm going to remain responsible and a good student for the next five weeks, I am going to live a little bit more. Maybe I'll stay out later, or get extra sleep, but what I want most is to find the beauty in every moment. Even when the moments are bittersweet.
Ps- Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers on Friday. The decision was difficult to make. While it's hard to see the benefits now, I know that in the end I would have a lifetime of regret up my sleeve had I not taken action to help a friend.
