Welcome to the Future

Change. It's something that is happening increasingly quickly for me at the moment. This is mainly due to the fact that I am in the run up to one of the most pivotal moments in my life; GCSEs. For some of you, this stage may be behind you. For me, it's just starting. 

I didn't realise before now, but I am really scared. SO scared. The future seems so far away yet so excruciatingly close at the same time. I've realised now that from the beautiful age of 0 to 15 years, I have been living my life so easily. Although there have been some big bumps along the road and one huge hole that have slowed me down, it was quite an easy road until now. I have learnt to accept the problems in my life and this has been a lot easier with the help of my beautiful family and friends. However, at 16, it feels like I am living my life at 100mph. I am making decisions that are going to effect many aspects of my future life

'Eighty per cent of life's most defining moments take place before you are 35' - Elle, April 2013

This quote from Elle struck me as I can't get over how quick that is! Last night I was shocked at how little time I have left to do my best in my GCSEs. I was talking to my sister about how this upset me as I cant see myself into next week, let alone at 35 years old! Then she said something that inspired me and motivated me to carry on. She said 'you'll surprise yourself with how independent you can be. You just have to work hard and you'll achieve

This is when I realised; all these bumps and holes in the road aren't going to kill me, they'll be hard, but they won't stop me from achieving my dreams. I just have to grit my teeth and welcome my future with a smile.

Love from, Anastasia X

  1. Hello Holly,
    I have just read this again and was blown away - no, I recalled how talented you’ve always been and the dedication and enthusiasm you direct into your passion.
    You and your siblings have often buoyed me up especially if I’ve been at a low ebb.
    Thank you all for your contributions to the world and long may your creativity shine on it.
