It may be hard, but I want you to know that you have to hold on; you will get there. Continue to appreciate everything and everyone around you; from the little things to the big adventures, from the people close to you to the strangers you will meet on the train on the way home. Continue to be grateful for the people who continued to stand by you through it all because they saw you mature into the person you are today. But most of all, realize that you must thank those who left you because they made you stronger and gave you lessons that you will never learn in the four corners of any classroom. Continue to smile despite the bad days. Continue to love and appreciate despite misunderstandings. Continue to fight for your dream, especially when it gets hard. Continue to be better, every single day.
