Life Goes On..

broken-chain.jpgIt is inevitable that we will all, at some point or another, lose someone... regardless of how strong that relationship is/was.

Some people enter our life for 2 weeks. Yet during those 2 weeks, you feel like you've gotten to know everything about them and they take over a big portion of your day and thoughts. Other times, you know someone for 7 years.. it seems like an eternity. They'll never leave you. Not after all you've been through. Not them!! Right?

One day though, they just walk out of your life. It doesn't seem to make any sense. You are suddenly left feeling very unstable. Very confused. No reason seems to make sense. So you sit there, you wonder.. you get upset, annoyed, frustrated at that void they've left behind. At the end, you accept it and think 'it's their loss' and move on!

I've had my share of losses. Some friends whom I thought would stick around forever are long gone. But I'm ok with it. In the end, I am nothing more than the sum of all my experiences. Whatever I've faced in my life, good and bad, have made me into the person I am today.

I am thankful for all those who have walked out of my life.. and even more thankful for those who have chosen to walk in. Such is the cycle of life. Whether we like it or not, we move on because life moves on!
