If I’d only known that one day, all grown up, I would…
… meet people who would charm me with their spark – only to leave me alone when I least expect it.
… break my heart. Several times.
… cry my eyes out with sorrow more scary than any monster out there.
… lose my greatest (furry) friend ever, which I at the time had yet only dreamt about.
… feel like all alone in the world. All alone.
… not get the thing that I most wanted.
… find out that boys can be really, really mean.
… have a friend and make heart-shaped promises of a lifelong friendship…. Then loose the friend.
If I’d only known these things – maybe I would not have wanted to grow up. Like ever.
But then again – if I’d only known that one day, all grown up, I would…
… meet people that would charm me – time and time again… And never leave my side.
… find out that your heart heals, even after the biggest of bumps in the road.
… giggle my ass off, daily. (grown ups giggle too!)
… have the most sweetest & wisest furry friend. And yes, one day I would have to let her go – but knowing that I got to know the dog with a heart of gold and a nose tip cuter than anything else in the world.
… find a friend. Keep a friend.
… not get the thing I most wanted. And later realize it really wasn’t what I wanted after all – and then getting something way better, something I didn’t even know existed.
… find out that boys are, in the end, so damn cute.
… that I would feel lonely, more than once… Only to realize that love was just around the corner.
… Knowing all that, I think I would’ve said… LET’S GROW UP ALREADY!
