The Goodbye Girl

In adventure, friends, fun on July 27, 2012 at 10:23 am

I’ve been called a lot of things in my life, and I’ve called myself many things. The Goodbye Girl seems to be the most accurate of them all. Very few things are constant in my life, but I constantly seem to be saying goodbye. You might think that goodbyes are negative, that you have to omit something from your life, but in fact, goodbyes are merely an outlet for someone you love to go on to something new, and to new experiences, not without you, but with old experiences feeding into new experiences. When we say goodbye, we aren’t dismissing people from our lives, we are merely acknowledging that we may not see them for a while. The people that come into our lives will impact us forever, whether we realize it at the time or not.  I am currently facing another goodbye, and this one feels like my heart may break. However, as much as I’m in love with my current life, I am SO excited for my new life. I feel like I’m being split in half, and I know I will never forget the amazing things and people in my current life, but I know that I have to keep on my current path and explore my new life, because it holds so many new adventures that I can’t even fathom. I’m so very excited, and so heartbroken at the same time, and I can’t think of any other way I’d rather live my life.
