Lost in sea of plenty fish.

by Layne on September 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

There's that saying that says that theres plenty of fish in the sea. I've always believed that; that even if you can't find someone in this moment, there would be others. Sometimes I marvel about how some of the most important people in my life I probably haven't even met yet. How comforting it is to be one amongst thousands in this vast ocean. But the opposite also holds truth. When we're looking to hold onto a single person, a single fish in this entire ocean, how is it possible not to lose them amongst the school? I wish I knew that answer.
