Now that cheerleading is over, I have no excuse not to blog. I have way too much time on my hands now. It's nice to have more energy. For the past seven months I've been so tired from throwing girls in the air, flipping, cheering, dancing, you know...all the fun stuff for cheerleaders? Red Bank High School's competition squad ended with a bang.....NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! Yes, that's right! Ahhh, I can still remember the moment in awards. It only took the first syllable of the second place team to hear to realize we really did win. I'm so blessed that God gave me this team for my senior year!
I couldn't ask for a better life right now. I have everything I need...friends, family, love, and happiness. This feeling just gets better all the time.
There's a saying "time's flying by, moving so fast, you better make it count cause' you can't get it back." Well life is going like this for me, it sure is moving so fast. Although college is next fall and I'm extremely excited, I wish God could make it slowwwwwww down. The Daniels household is filled with questions of "you have your senior project done, have you applied to college, when is graduation?" I remember the days when I could only dream of this happening. Prom, high school, better yet middle school was a desire more than a reality. Little girls and little boys, never wish your life away. Before you know it, the real "life" starts knocking at your door.
"Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
No one's ever burned you
Nothing's ever left you scarred
Even though you want to, just try to never grow up"
When you are lost you can be found
Love can be found unexpected
You can find yourself in ways you never expected
This is me
Everyday I wonder why I have [you], why did God give me this gift?
You accept my silly, nerdy, dramatic, goofy, different, unique self
You remind me I'm beautiful everyday
You have made me believe in a little thing called love once again
Thank you Taylor for everything you have already done...there's still so much more to come.
I love music! Seriously, I have a song for every mood on my ipod. Recently I added a song from Natasha Bedingfield, "Wild Horses." One line from this song has been stuck in my head.
"All I want is the wind in my hair to face the fear, but not feel scared"
Life is changing fast. With school beginning in less than a month, not to mention it's not just any school year...it's senior year, I am realizing this year I have so much growing up to do. My life the past year has been filled with too much stress of things that are honestly not important. Everyday I try to move past this, but why is it so hard? I can either face this fear or run from it. Facing my fear of growing into a stronger person will leave me with an amazing feeling. Time heals. If I will feel the wind in my hair and face every oppurtunity or struggle with grace and calmness, there is nothing I can be scared of.
I'm Taylor Raye, known by most of my friends as TRD. I'm a senior at Red Bank High School...still hard to believe. I plan on attending the University of Tennessee in the fall of 2011. Cheerleading and school consumes most of my life, along with spending time with friends and family! God, family, and friends keep my life stable. Without them, I would be no where on this journey called life. I've created this blog to capture memories of my senior year! Enjoy :)
