Time is the one thing that is always changing. you can't stop it, speed it up, destroy it, or create it. it is what it is and always will be.
i just finished watching my camp video from last summer and it's odd to see how different everything is now. change is something i've always tried to avoid bc with it comes the oppertunity for something worse than what you already had, but change is not something you can run and hide from. no matter where you are, who you are, or what situation you're in: change will happen no matter what.
that summer was the best of my life, but while i was living it i didn't see that. i was caught up in all the things that seemed so important at the time that i didnt put forth the extra effort to get to truly know the people who i'd met. so many wonderful people that i hope will always be friends to me. but that summer was simple. it was easy. i was happy and stress-free. now i'm swollowed by worries and questions, emotions and regrets. i can't help but ask myself, Why? why can't life be like it was last summer?
the answer: because there is a time for everything and this is my time to go through what i am. last sumer was my time to live last summer.
it's strange to think about how looking back everything will look so different as we grow, learn, and mature. but if you think things are bad remember that change will always find you and you'll understand one day why you're facing what you are. if your life is good dont forget to spend time loving the people you love, getting to know the friends you've made, and appriciating the life youre living RIGHT NOW.

ecclesiastes 3:1-8
"there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven; a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace."
