Oh goodness, hello!
It has been ages, I know. Sometimes life has this funny way of picking you up and never letting you back down. For me, high school has been the thing taking me away from this. High school isn't the type of place that just lets you come and go as you please, you have to dedicate yourself to it.
Even though I haven't posted on here in what feels like forever, I thought about this website everyday. I thought about what I could write on here, what I could do with it, where it's going, and why I havent posted in so long. I wanted to post, but I couldn't find the right words and with each passing day, it got harder and harder.
But here I am. Inspiration struck and I decided that life is far too short to not do the things you love, to not chase your goals, to not be happy.
So, I suggest a start over. I am not gong to delete my old posts for some of those I still stand by to this day. The past is not to b earased, but to learn and grow from. Rather, I am just going to start again. Pick up the pencil, go back to the drawing board, and rebuild. I want to start writing again. I want to start talking to people again. I want to start making happy my priority.
So let me reintroduce myself. My name is Laura. I am sixteen years old and going into my junior year of high school. I love to run, play basketball, and, of course, write. My friends and family are the most important people in my life because without them, I would be nothing. I love to be happy. I am a firm believer that happiness is the most important thing in life and is what drives the world. I'm a big fan of quotes. Everything I say is pactically a quote and sometimes it drives people crazy. My name is Laura. And I am the creater of Smiles All Around.
It's never too late or too early for a restart. There's that quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald that goes a little something like this:
"For what it's worth, it's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you are not, I hope you have the strenght to start over."
That is what I want to live by from here on out. I want to live a life I am proud of and by the end, whenever that may be, I hope that I can have no regrets about how I lived. My biggest regret has been stopping my posts here. But here I am, fixing it reguardless of how strange it may be. I love this project, and I am so proud of it and all it has done. But it is not over, it is never over.
