Saying goodbye

Hump day Treadmill Treats


Saying goodbye


Today I sit at the airport yet again, but I am not happy about this trip home.

This trip home isn’t to see my friends or family, to site see or to relax and enjoy some time off. No, this trip is one of the hardest for me as I must say goodbye to one of my childhood best friends.


My heart is heavy, my eyes filled with tears and as much as I would like, there is no smile on my face today.


Even saying all that, it still makes me grateful that I had the time I did with him, the last visit home and in the last two years.


See there is no regrets for me…he knew I loved and treasured him and I knew he felt the same about me. In fact as I was boarding the plane the last time, he called and said

“I wasn’t sure if I told you how much I loved you and I didn’t want you to leave until I did”


He made my day, see I told him I loved him every time we spoke,  but I tell all my friends, my family, everyone I care for that, because unfortunately I know how short life is.

I know we are not all promised tomorrow and just like that, it can be over.


I am quick to forgive, I am quick to reach out, even after I’ve been hurt because I know that one small fight, could change the course of your life.


You might not ever have the chance to make it right, to apologize for the words that cut like a knife, to let someone know how much they truly meant in your life.


I don’t ever want to live with regrets, I am living my life large, full of love and kindness, I am being present in every moment.


When people ask me why do I give so many chances, why do I forgive so fast, why don’t I let things bother me…

Why? Life is short…will it really mean anything in the big picture? We all screw up, we all say things we wish we didn’t, we all deserve second chances.


I am not here to judge others, I am here to show love, to be the light, to touch as many hearts as possible. I am not going to waste my precious time here on petty nonsense.


So today my friends, I will say my final goodbye to one of my best friends, as much as it will hurt me, I have no regrets, he knew how much I loved him and I knew how much he loved me and I know that one day he will be there, waiting for me, with his arms open wide, his head back laughing, with that shit eating grin…telling me how much he missed and how much he loved me and I will know that I lived my life doing the right thing.”Be the change you want to see”


“And just when the caterpillar thought his life over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
