OK, so by that title, you probably think this is going to be all rainbows and puppies.
NOT how I feel right this moment, but trying to see the all the positives that are possible from this change. If you have followed me for any length of time, you know that as a childless woman, I met an AMAZING Mom a few years ago who became a VERY close friend. So close, that she started referring to me as her beautiful daughter’s Bonus Mom. And that little girl, in essence, became my Best Friend. ❤
This is She and I at a Kickpics Photo shoot 2 years ago.
Last night, our embrace was filled with less happy emotions. LOTS of tears 😥
You see, I will not get to see her as often, because she and her Mom are moving away. And it is going to be HARD! I will miss them both HORRIBLY!
BUT…..I know this is good for them! It is a chance at a new beginning for my dear friend who needs, and DESERVES, to close a toxic chapter in her life! And I 100% understand and support her in that change. Will it be a difficult transition? Will it still hurt sometimes? Will it take TIME? YES!!!
But to be a good friend, I have to recognize that this is what is best. It is not like I will never see or speak to them again, just a little less.
My message today, is that sometimes the very BEST change for someone else, may hurt those left behind. But we have to make sure we are never holding someone back from living their happiest life. We will adjust. We can make it through. And if we stay positive and try to see their change as something good, maybe we will realize that they are here to lead as an example to us. Maybe their change could inspire a change in ourselves to work towards living our very best lives too. Because I don’t know about you, but I could use “stepping it up” a bit 😉
So although I will miss my dear friends, I will ALWAYS wish them the Greatest Happiness in their lives.
So even if adventures like these are fewer and farther in between, we will always hold these memories in our hearts, right next to the loving friendship that will never die!
Amazing what kind of friendships can grow from a simple little Dance Fitness class ❤
Enjoy your next chapter, My Friend! And I WILL see you soon ❤
