Tonight, as I sat in my apartment alone, watching Netflix and group texting my best friends – I realized how much I actually miss them. How much I really miss all of the important people in my life. I miss my parents, my sister, my old roommates/best friends, my best friend in Texas, my friends in Texas, my grandma, etc. I get so distracted by my life and what I’m needing to do, I forget to take time to be grateful for all of the people I miss.
I am SO blessed. I’ve been given some of the most incredible people in my life and I frequently do everything in my power to not miss them- to forget I’m no longer within walking distance of these people. To forget we’re growing up and this is the main part of being adults. We travel, we leave our families, and we live the life we’re meant to be living. We find new people to spend time with. New places to frequent. New traditions.
Yet, we always forget to remember the ones who helped us get here. They are the ones who gave us confidence in starting fresh and new. We need each other to grow – to become better. Oh man, have I gotten better because of the people I’ve been surrounded with.
So, here’s to you, my faithful family and friends. My heart is heavy knowing how much I have been loved over my lifetime and how I continue to feel that love every single day. You are the special ones. Thank you for giving me a life worth loving and cherishing every single moment. Thank you for guiding me and loving me during my childhood, teenage years, college days, and now my young adult life.
“Nothing is as it has been
And I miss your face like Hell
And I guess it’s just as well
But I miss your face like Hell”
I love y’all.
