I am encouraged when I go to the library after school and spend a few hours getting work done. I am encouraged when my family and I spend time together. I am encouraged when my friends and I involve ourselves in deep conversations. I am encouraged by this life, and all the breaths I am able to take, all the familiar faces I am able to greet. I am encouraged by the appreciation of an argument. I am encouraged by comedic films, I am encouraged by the eyes of a dog that stares at you with love.
I like to write; point blank. This is a little piece of me that I get to share with the rest of the world, and hey, you know, maybe you'll appreciate it, maybe it'll do nothing for you. But my writing exists, and that's enough for me.
