that last post was a lie. there’s a third thing missing. i won’t bother with the details because you can probably fill in the blanks.

i was taught a valuable lesson, once, about the meaning of love. it was discussed that the traditional definition uses words like “attachment” and “infatuation” and things that lead you to believe it’s all about losing yourself to somebody, while the buddhist definition claims that it is simply wanting another to be happy. it is courageous and unconditional.

i’ve said it a million times before, and i’ll say it again. this is my absolute best friend. and he’s going through a rough time right now. we are going to be apart for something around two months while he ventures out to get it all under control. not having him around is going to be hard. and as we’ve already discovered from my last internship, it’s not something that gets easier with each passing day. but none of that matters, because i know in my heart that he’s going to come back an even greater person than he already is.

until then, if i’ve ever needed well wishes and positive energies sent this way, it is now. i love him so ridiculously much, and there is nothing in this world i want more than to just see him happy.

words

i’m having trouble finding them this week. they must be gone with wherever i once again misplaced every ounce of energy in my mind, body, and soul.

work, wake, work, wake, funeral, another phone call, work…

i watched one of my best friends bury his sister yesterday. in her mid-twenties, she was too young to die, but all the same, too exhausted to fight. she’s been sick with a rare and (so far) incurable disease for the entire ten years i’ve known the family. since then, i’ve never seen a day they weren’t right beside her. nor have i seen a day where kristin herself wasn’t hopeful about the future, or filled with love even while she watched everyone live the normal life she couldn’t. the strength my friend’s family showed these past few days within themselves, and for each other, has been just as inspiring as the battle kristin fought until it took her, in the peace of her sleep and the comfort of her own bed, the way it was meant to happen.

like clockwork, my boyfriend and i got home from the funeral, only to receive a phone call a few hours later about our friend’s dad. i have no doubt that her strength will inspire me even further in these upcoming days, months, and beyond. after sending her wishes of peace and love, i think that’s where i started to lose my words.

good thing i’ve already done this before…

tomorrow is never promised. i posted about this after two of my closest friends got into a car accident they should have died in two months ago. so this may come off as repetitive to some. but i will never turn down the opportunity to remind anyone who will listen to hold close the ones and the things that they love.
