you see, today is my half-birthday. and strangely enough, sometimes i feel older than i am. fourteen and a half - that's not long to have been here on earth. growing up can be hard; making mistakes and learning lessons and realizing that some things you once had are gone. but, despite the pain, i know that there is something good behind it. (at least, i try to know.)
sometimes i feel like that kite - i fly high for a short time, only to crash down just as swiftly. i suppose that life is like that. but i can tell you this - with the Lord's help, one of these days I will rise above it all, and see the light shining through the clouds.
and now i leave you with some music. songs that are teaching me things about life. songs that are reminding me that i will rise.
p.s. i guess you can kind of tell from this playlist that my taste in music is, um.. narrow. got any suggestions? ;)
p.p.s. thank you all for your encouraging comments on the last post. it means a lot.
