Leap day has always been a day for me to reflect where I was four years ago, and where I am now. To realize just how much I have grown, changed, matured, and developed over a period of time.
I remember my last leap year. My family spent the day with this awesome girl's family. We visited the local springs, marveling at God's hand on the scenery and nature. The surprise guests being some wild manatees who drifted aimlessly up the spring, munching on the water's vegetation. I was hyper with the anticipation of turning twelve just the next month. To me, it was a huge deal.
Four years later, I've added a couple inches to my height, I have lost but gained so many friends, and now I'm dreading the arrival of my birthday. Its such a frightening experience to grow older, to finally have the realization hit you that you won't be this young forever. In...*checks calendar* twenty-two days my birthday will be here and I will add another year onto the amount of time I have been alive. Its still a shock to me. I am really going to be sixteen? Wow.
I cannot believe how much I have learned in four years. In some ways, I am still that little girl I was, but in many ways, I am different: I grew my bangs out, I wear make-up, I get more intense crushes, my room is no longer flower-adorned and I want, even more than before, to have His light shine through my life.
|One day, one day, I will travel here :)|
In what ways have you changed during these four years?
