What makes you lovely?

"As human beings, we often spend our time thinking about what we are supposed to be doing and who we are supposed to be. However, there never really seems to be a right answer. This uncertainty used to scare me, and I often found myself petrified by the unknown.

These last few years have changed that, and they have been the most incredible whirlwind of learning experiences. I have laughed, cried, and eaten way too much chocolate, all while trying to figure out what it means to live. I am still not sure that I have figured it out, but I think that is the point.

Uncertainty is a beautiful thing. We can’t control the earth-shattering pain from our first heartbreak, the need for caffeine during stressful nights cramming for midterms, or the fact that traffic in Portland is unbearable. All we can do is embrace these moments and learn to love our lives no matter what comes our way.

What makes me lovely? I am learning to embrace the uncertainty of life and choosing to love every moment of it."
