summer really snuck up on me this year.
i sometimes feel like i'm floating, drifting though time,
treading water, trying to hold on, not sink,
not grow up too fast.
i've always been a nostalgia addict.
melancholy is a feeling familiar to my heart.
but the new holds such promise, brings such refreshment.
new songs, new places, new people.
they open our eyes and enrich moments.
though for seconds,
i almost get tired of the struggle of new things,
i want to be safe, stay parked with what is known.
but life isn't about me. i am here for others, for Him.
balance is key.
balance is THE key.
and i'm learning that turning the key in the ignition is worth it.
