You know, I used to not talk about my future at all.
And it’s not that I didn’t think about it, or that it scared me, rather I felt disinterested in it.
And that is probably because I didn’t even think I’d be around long enough to see, to live, my future.
For that reason I only planned things by seconds, not because I wanted to take it slow or to relax, and not because I was a procrastinator, but because, who even cared about what clothes I’d be wearing the next day when I didn’t even know if I’d wake up?
Since I met you, things started to change.
Since I met you, the future looks more real to me.
Since I met you, I care about it.
Since I met you, I don’t just shrug my shoulder when people ask me “where do you see yourself in five, ten, twenty, years?”
Now, that same question, scares me.
And that’s because it matters.
And it matters because of you.
So I guess all I want to tell you is “thank you”.
Because now, thanks to you, when people ask me that same question, what I want to answer is “alive.”
