My time here has been nothing but enjoyment. I can feel myself growing as an individual. Becoming more comfortable with who I am and what I want in life. Beginning to realize who my true friends are and who isn’t. But, most importantly, I am for the first time in a while, happy and content with my life. Ireland has taught me to enjoy the present, forget about the past, and prepare the future.
With this being said, I wanna write about some important people in my life. Some people I have met in Ireland that have changed my life for the better and who are the reasons I am beginning to shape into the person I want to be. Karlee and Aryn, thank you. You both have truly impacted my life in ways you do not even know. Its been both a pleasure and honor to call you two my best friends. From the million of laughs, tears, deep convos, fun nights, you two have made this transition bearable. Although we have only known each other for a short amount of time, I couldn’t imagine my life without you. You constantly lift my spirits, bring me hope, drive me to my full potential, but mostly, you let me be me. In the past I’ve felt I have been unable to fully present myself to the world. Always worried or embarrassed or scared. Meeting you two, Ive opened up, and become someone I always knew I was. It is so important to surround yourself with genuine, positive people. I have always had true friends in my life, friends that I could always count on to be there in both good and bad times. But with moving so far away, these relationships can shift. Friends that I thought would also be apart of my life are starting to show their true colors. But that is life. You grow apart, you meet new people. Karlee and Aryn have opened my eyes to this. They are two awesome individuals. And I am just so thankful to be apart of their lives. “There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family”
With this, here are some fun pictures of us enjoying our time together in Ireland!
