This is the first page of my novel.
“The first step to fulfilling my dream”
There I stood in the small airport, with my body facing the metal detector, about to go through security. My face was red and my eyes were puffy. I blinked as another tear rolled down my cheek. My mother stood holding my father’s arm, sobbing into his shoulder. My parents waved goodbye. That would be my last image of them for the next eight months. That was it, my last memory before I left. Finally, the trip I had longed for, for such a long time; the first step to fulfilling my dream. By this time, I already knew who I was, what I wanted and my main purpose in life; helping others. I had already learned to laugh, cry, love, write, kiss and dream. I knew I was on the right track to a journey that had to be experienced and appreciated more than many things in my life.
But this journey was way after high school; the toughest four years of my life. It was when I was a lost child who thought she had fallen in love countless times. That was when I was able to make a fool of myself, just to please others. That’s when pain was the only path to love and justified it with false enchantments. That was when I only considered others’ opinions and mine were hidden far away where no one could know about them. But it took great courage and strength to get up after falling so many times. If it weren’t for all those mistakes, the laughing, the crying, the joy, the pain, the good and bad people that came into my life, I never would have learned so much, and most of all, I never would be the person I am today.
