I had some alone time this weekend, and was feeling quite nostalgic.
We cannot turn back time but if we could, who would we talk to one last time?
There are many people who have come and gone in my life. Friends, family, family friends, teachers/mentors, you name it, they've been there. Some were my age, some younger, and some much older. Some were there for a long period of time, and one day they just grow distant. Others were there for a short period, but still made an impact. At the time you think you'll keep in touch with people forever, and that's simply not the case. People move, go to college, get married, or are just in a different life stage than you.
If there is one thing I want to say to these people no matter how big or small their impact on my life was, it is this:
You walked into my life at a time when you were supposed to be there. Even to the ones that ended on a sour note, I want to say thanks for being a part of my life anyway. There are so many people that this message could apply to, and if you think you are one of them you probably are.
No matter how hard we try, there are some things we can't keep a hold of. Some people aren't meant to be in our lives forever, and that's okay. They are passing through. They give us blessings, lessons, and gifts no matter how long their stay is.
I'm only 21 years old, and there's a very long list of people whom I've lost touch with.
Time goes by so quickly!
Know that if you are on that list, I still think about you, and cherish the time we had. Even going back to my playground days. :)
Love you all. Happy Monday!
