I used to be the most important person in their lives, but they’ve grown up without so much as a backward glance

I peer back into the past to see if I can catch a glimpse of an earlier version of me, but that person was young and full of insecurities. And our dreams no longer match up. I’m wiser now, rounder in both body and spirit, and with mileage in my soul, I see barely a shadow of myself in the younger version of me. Like an oak tree contemplating an acorn I suppose. There is something quite liberating in this activity though. Pleasure floods through me when I realise I am no longer as fragile, no longer as desperate to be liked or no longer as hungry to make my mark on the world. I am, I come to a startling conclusion, content. I mull this concept around in my mind for a while. Contentment. It is so far from what I think I wanted in life, and yet, I like the way it feels. Smooth. Pleasing. Comfortable. I’m shrugging this on, like my new furry coatigan, while I work out what I want to do for this next stage of my life. How I want to spend my time and energy, which is less boundless than it once was. And I come to the conclusion that this stage of life is a gift. An opportunity to think again about where to direct oneself. It comes with the acceptance that there is no destination that does not fly past before you’ve had time to unpack and change the bed linen. Life is flow. Life is motion. Life is what happens between events. Life must be lived in the moment.

My family home has taught me how to love people even while not really liking them in the moment, how to apologize for something said in anger, how to recognize the importance of maintaining bonds and preserving relationships with those we really truly care about

The looming horizon of graduation and the end of this season of my life, then college and moving away and the beginning of an entirely new season, has really pushed me to consider what I care about here, and how I’m going to take that with me into the rest of my life.

I want to be the designer of dazzling stage costumes and eye-catching costumes for the main characters in movies and TV series

I like beautiful clothes, especially senior custom suits, evening dress, and on the stage, the various actors in the movie to wear costumes of rich s feeling and classical beauty, I really hope that one day a movie is known to all is a kind of beautiful clothes out the design of the self, or a star will wear my design dresses to attend important media events
