Oh no, this is not a story of goodbyes.
In fact, this is an appreciation of moving on and saying hello to new friends, opportunities, and exciting circumstances that could make life more wonderful and interesting.
Living in a fast-paced life, we are all forced to get on easily with new faces and situations that are necessary to get on with our life. I, for one, have been through enough stances that makes me realize how grateful am for all the people I met and have been meeting in my life. They teach a lot of things even without saying a word that creates an impact in my own perspective in things and circumstances. Especially now that I am in this stage of recognizing other people with the same interests and mind-set as mine, learning how to deal with changes and accepting everything as God’s will for me, is a total must.
But in spite of the changes that we all must experience, I guess one thing is for sure – we all get our happy hormones up and be excited in meeting someone we haven’t met in such a long time. Sure, there would be a lot of changes but that’s what makes the meeting exciting – catching up about what life has done to us can be something more extra-sweet.
What I am saying is, meeting a friend you haven’t met for such a long time is the dearest thing ever! Especially if you had lots of exciting moments with them before. Remembering those days when you were young and innocent and obviously oblivious of what other people will think. Those are the times that are worth talking about.
What makes it more exciting is, apart from all the experience we both been through, regardless of all the changes that made our life totally different from each other, those simple things from the past still keeps us friends – and I guess, it’s safe to say – forever.
And that could never be as sweet as it could be without that day you said – at least, temporarily – goodbye.
After 11 years, thanks girl for making me realize that ‘friends’ do exist.
