It has been quite some time since I took a moment to even look at my page. However, today, I felt moved to write. While I hope you’ll excuse me if I don’t dive into a deep reflection of year-long cogitation. I just ask you to bear with the process. So, I decided a little over a year ago that I would stop writing for a year, kind of a Sabbatical from my account. However, it was still there, and I knew; eventually, I would get back. I lost a very close friend last October, and I really didn’t know how to feel. It was unexpected, and I was forced to think of all of the moments I missed or ignored. Finally, I stopped feeling guilty and angry (or anything in-between), and I started to reflect on all of our shenanigans. I sang all of the songs she loved to hear. I reminded myself of the first day we met and how she relied on my advice and ideas. I had to hold on to the directions I knew she would give.
Today was an okay day for a Monday. Everything seemed to be in place. Of course, there was a hiccup here or there, but overall, not bad. As I ended my workday, read through some leftover emails, I ran across one that made me reflect. You never know the challenges others hide behind their smile. Cherish every moment, forget that stupid argument that probably won’t matter tomorrow. Live each day as the gift it is. Tomorrow is not a guarantee, and each moment you get should be cherished.
