And We're Off...

So, I am leaving in like another hour and I figure that since I don't think I am going to get to update this daily, I might as well write one last time!

I watched the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with my sister tonight and there was a line in it that really struck me. One of the girls said something about how the others around her have lost everything and still love and yet she has lost nothing and is afraid to love. I think that really hit home with me. Sometimes I think that one day getting married is the scariest idea and so I run but there are other days where I really can't wait to get married. So, there you have it, I am truly afraid to love. I think that it is mostly because I am afraid to be hurt. My mom once said to me that the people who hurt us most are the people we love. If we never want to be hurt, then we can never love. And, love should be the greatest thing that a human being is capable of. Love really does "lift us up." Love is what makes people do crazy things. And yes, I am terrified of it. But I do think that it is totally normal for a girl my age to be afraid to love!

Anyhow... I am off to Florida for a few months. I am so excited and hope that I have the best trip. It should be awesome. Seriously, I get to work with Mickey Mouse and what could be better than that???? Until next time, (hopefully soon!)



Those that Love
