I miss being a little kid. Things seemed so easy back then. Food tasted better, candy seemed sweeter, and even the sun seamed brighter. You felt loved and it felt as though nothing could ever go wrong. But then you get older. And you become exposed to the ways of the world. You begin to become overwhelmed, your heart becomes bruised, and your face is permanently stained from evaporated tears. You become stronger and much more wiser. Lessons are learned and you try not to repeat your mistakes…life is hard. You begin to wish you didn’t try to grow up so fast. You reminisce about the old days. You wish you can just relive things and fix all your mistakes, you think about everything your parents tried to tell you to avoid, and you understand things more. You use life lessons to better yourself and you don’t make the same mistake twice. At the end of the day you realize everything you went through growing up made you the person who you are today. You are successful.
