Due to the 9/11 attacks, endless shootings, and even bombings, we are beginning to live in a world full of worry and terror. It is unimaginable that a person could perform these acts of terror on another. Yet, through all of the violence we endure.

The thing about transitions is, sometimes it's helpful to revisit the past in order to see how much you've grown. Recently, I thought about my father's passing -- and a beautiful pen that was dear to him. It reminded me that some endings are actually beginnings in disguise.

The propensity to get lost in what should have been or what might be one day is an escape from what is. Being present, being mindful, being intentional about what matters to you is a daunting task even without technology grabbing your attention like it is entitled.

In 14 quick years, you'll enter high school. It might not seem "quick" to you, but trust me, 14 years is nothing. Regardless, don't sweat it. It will be fine. Even when it's not, even when the air feels so thick it is hard to breathe, know that you'll come out the other end and do great things.
