As spring arrives so does transformation. Spring brings beauty and everyone loves beautiful things. But beauty isn’t always about what it looks like on the outside. Yes I know that is a cliche thing to say but it’s true. The beauty is often found in the transition from “ugly” to beautiful. Take winter and spring for example. Winter (when there is no snow) is brown and ugly because everything is dead, but as spring arrives we start to see plants bloom and animals come out (even pesky mosquitoes). I believe that the transformation is often the most beautiful part. I have had my own share of transformations as I am sure many of us have.
I was adopted at a young age. I am much older now and have lived with my family for 12+ years, but I am STILL transforming. Everyday I wake up and I face 100 fears. I constantly tell myself truths instead of lies to become the person I know I am meant to be. I fight to transform into a better version of myself. I find that it is all the times I have messed p and fallen down that make me beautiful. Another example of the beauty in transformation would be the seniors of 2020. Their school year has been cut short and many things take from them. While I feel sorry for them I choose to look at it this way. Students have more time now to work (if they have a job), pick up old (or new) hobbies, or simply spend time or reconnect with family.
There is so much beauty to be found in this world of “ugly” one must simply look for it. Or as Albus Dumbledore would say “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.” So I encourage everyone to start looking at things a little differently and “turn on the light”.
And always remember,
Every little thing is gonna be okaye.
