"One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful"
- Sigmund Freud
Without going into too many personal details, I'll preface this post by saying that the past few weeks haven't been the easiest ever. I'm also sure the next couple weeks will only come with their own set of struggles attached. With that being said, this isn't a "pity me" post or a post to make you worry about my well being.
Because I am certain there are so many beautiful things coming out of this season of my life.
and I am certain that there is a reason for everything.
I can't even begin to express how thankful I am for the friends I have made at Mansfield. Our band director has this saying that goes something like this: "when you start to feel like you don't have any strength left, look to your right, and look to your left, and borrow some from those on either side of you". This past week I found myself looking to my left and looking to my right, but instead found myself completely surrounded by so many caring people. Friends willing to listen, comfort, give advice and just be there. To all of you, I thank you so much. You have no idea how much you all mean to me and how much I appreciate your continuing support. You all inspire me to be a better friend and I'm sure that years from now, when I look back on this time, your love and support will be part of what strikes me as most beautiful.
