You are the conclusion to the storm that was September.
You are exactly what I needed: a tough wake up call that would push (or rather, ‘gently’ shove) me into a new chapter.
You are yet another chance. I feel like a cat with 9 lives, and I’m pushing my luck. But if I waste the physical and emotional chances this time around, then you can get rid of me then.
My life hasn’t had many clear conclusions. I’ve left two gray er, ‘areas’, from a lack of (mutual) understanding. I left a few friendships hanging and they’ve been reduced into strangers. I graduated without any certainty on what my career would be.
But here I am, and here you are, another October. Another quarter in the year. Another month in my soon-to-be-25-years of life. You closed the door, and left me walking into a familiar path. Not too familiar, but welcoming enough (I hope).
I’m not quite sure what to expect. But thanks for teaching me to let go September (same goes with August, of course). And for the rest of 2012? Thanks for never spoiling me. It’s exactly what I need before easing into my mid-twenties in the next quarter.
