plans in pencil

we can’t predict our lives. we can’t hope that things are going to go the exact way we set them out to be. 

because it doesn’t work that way. even if we want it to. and yeah it sucks i know. but hold up. 

i know for some instances it hurts like hell because of it. like saying goodbye. 

and i know in that moment. it’s hard to imagine that this could maybe actually end up being the best thing for us. because the next one will be better than before. you might not realize it right away. and yeah it might take some time before you can even see it. 

but i’m telling you each and everything in its own way will shape you one step closer to where you’re supposed to be. 

don’t put your plans down in sharpie. because there’s going to be times where you don’t get that closure you’re looking for. or any closure for that matter. but you still have to move on. you have to keep going.

because life’s going to surprise you in ways you could never imagine.

but i don’t believe in coincidences

i believe that everything happens for a reason.

and trust me i KNOW how cliche that sounds. 

but i’m serious. every single event. decision. everything has an after effect. and a single alteration to it causes a ripple effect. so while for some circumstances it may be minor. and others a major change. it all ends up making a difference. like you running into an old friend reminding you of how things used to be. it changed up your thought process. at least for a minute. and you never know how that minute is going to affect any decision you make later on. 

but it will. because that’s just the nature of how it works. 

and that’s why you have to make your plans in pencil.

all the memories. they’ll stick with you. the downs the ups. it’s all coming along the way. 

i’m only 18. and if you asked me 10 years ago where i saw myself today. granted i was 8. i would never expect to be who i am today. hell if you asked me even my freshman year of high school i still wouldn’t have believed you. or that i would have experienced everything i have these past 18 years. like it’s crazy how much life changes. moment by moment. and all of a sudden you’re in a whole new place with yourself. and who you are as an individual.

but if there’s anything that i’ve learned. it’s that what you put out in the universe. it’ll come back to you. 


it’s the law of unity. that people and things will happen in the exact moment. all intertwined together. 

every ‘coincidence’ has a message. if something doesn’t happen the way you thought it would. think about why things went the way it did. why your life just switched up on you like that. and if you can’t see it. well just wait.

because one day.

you’ll be thinking you can’t imagine your life any other way. 

life’s kinda funny that way. 

a waiting game. 

but it’s what you do with it that ends up making the difference. 

take sight of those ‘coincidences’. 

and change your luck around my dudes.
