Day 4: Key West
Today we started the day waking up unnecessary early to get breakfast at Starbucks before the rush started. Sitting outside wih our 50 dollar breakfast while tanning. Getting back to the hostel just before the pool opens and we’re ready for a swim before hitting the road.
Whiles driving over bridge after bridge, island after island only seeing water on both left and right as long as the eye can see, we arrive Key West after 4 hours in the car with only 3 stops along the way.
Unbeviebly beautiful this world but I have to say that Key West wasn’t all that.
Trashy motel rooms that are getting worse by the day. Luckily we’re only staying here for one night and then it’s of to Miami. And after a beer, one cocktail and a round of biljard hitting the bed sounded real good. And after walking home getting a bit lost at first I’m lying in the bed while Pirates of the Carribian is on in the background.
But I think the night will end soon after reading a bit of The Help.
I’ve missed you so dearly, my friend. Mr. Friday, finally you’ve arrived. And even though I won’t have enough time for you today I thank you for coming because this means one more day, one more week to look forward to, and only 12 days till Christmas Eve. We’re halfway there. A year ago I would never imagen I would be where I am today. I could never believe the love, the heartache or the challenges I’ve gone through. This year, more than any other year, has passed so fast it’s hard to wrap my head around. I wish I could passe back to the begging, to where it all started. I miss the start. I miss my old friends, loved ones. They will be in my heart forever, but nevertheless I miss them deeply.
I wish so profoundly that I knew why everything happens. But I guess only time will tell. I also wish that you knew how much you mean to me. But I guess you do.
I choose to be happy, but that doesn’t mean that I am.
Until 6 months ago I would have said that I would find that one person that means the world to be and tell him that I love him with all my heart and I would do anything for him. Now I don’t know anymore…
What would you do if you only had 1 day left of living?
Sometimes I pray to God and ask him to give my life to someone else, someone who gives his life a meaning, a purpose. Someone that would live every day to the fullest. And in a brief second I feel my stomach tighten and my heart slowing down. And in that split second I take everything back because I don’t want to die. And I think the scariest thing in life right now is thinking about death. Espescially losing loved ones. But I’m still not living my life to the extent the way that I want to. I’m not breaking any rules or doing what I’ve always dreamed of doing. But if I knew I only had one day left I surely wouldn’t be sitting by my computer, wasting every second of my time. Because time is valuable, the most valuable thing we possess. We can’t buy time, but instead our time is pre ordered. Take your given time and make the most out of it!
But since it’s Christmas, remember how blessed you are. Tell someone you love them, smile, give your friend a hug or reach out for someone in need. But don’t let it slip away when the new year arrives, because I believe that the most giving part of life is giving back and helping others. And I promise you’ll be happy for the rest of your life.
