Staying Gold To Me

Chapter 1

What It Taught Me...

"I've been thinking about it, and that poem, that guy wrote it, he mean't you're gold when your a kid, like green. When your a kid everything's new, dawn. It's just when you get used to everything that it's day. Like the way you dig sunsets Pony. That's gold. Keep it that way, it's a good way to be."

The phrase Stay Gold means a lot to me. Ever since I read the book The Outsiders I like basically live by this saying.
It made me look differently at things. It made me look at the things around me. Theres so much beauty in the world aside from all the disasters of everyday life. I feel like I had a Ponyboy to remind me to look at the clouds once in awhile, look at the sunsets, notice things around you that you just might of skimmed past cause it didn't seem like that big of a deal.
Everytime I looked around at my surroundings I noticed something new that was beautiful. The little things.
I watch sunrises and sunsets and they resemble life and how it looses it's innocence as the day or in our case time goes by.
The innocence is what makes you pure like how the most pure part of the day is that sunrise that you may see in the mornings.
I sure don't wanna loose this as I go on the journey of life.
Staying Gold reminds me to do the good things in life and make good choices that way I will always be able to be "Gold", how Johnny wanted Ponyboy too.
Quote: "It's a good way to be." Johnny told Ponyboy in his letter to him.
I see some of these people in the world today and think that if they just knew how to Stay Gold they wouldn't be where they are today.
The Outsiders taught me this and now I will notice the little things in life and take the time to just stop what I'm doing and really take it all in. Hope you all do the same.

"I never noticed colors, clouds and stuff until you kept reminding me about them. It's like they were never there before."
