'We are infinite'

So this week I  was reading 'The Perks of being a Wallflower' (again) and there was one quote that stuck with me; 'We are infinite'. Now those of you who have read the book will know that Charlie (the main character) is classed as a wallflower and with his new friends (seniors Sam and Partick) he takes a memorable drive in Sam's pickup truck and this perfect song comes on the radio, and nothing can deter their happiness in that given moment. And Charlie's words resonate in my mind. As young people we are infinite, I am infinite, you are infinite. Our whole lives stretch before us and the childish constraints that prohibited us from truely reaching our desires is gone.

And in all those moments, whether it be that perfect song, that perfect night, that perfect moment with friends (which so insignificant to outsiders is a moment that we'll never forget) make us infinite. No matter how small we must seize these moments, for as we grow and age, and those perfect moments all those years ago suddenly seem inconsequential is when we slip up. When we loose that feeling we limit ourselves, we begin to see ourselves as the judgemental do, and the boudaries created can sufficate you.

So seize those moments, live for them, make your own infinite memories, smile, and never let go of them.
