Sometimes, in order to move forward
we must clear space in our lives.
Even if that means losing things we love.
It’s so hard to watch things we love fall apart:
Our relationships, our bodies, our families (including work team families).
They all have a shelf life.
But there’s a secret to combatting this decaying force.
Enjoy them now!
Seize the Day!
Own the moment!
My personal journey with this lesson:
I've had two friends for 17 years. And I'll lose them both soon.
One is deaf, the other mostly blind.
I've had them so long, I don't know what my life will look like without them.
My days are not long with them, I know that.
So I hold them often. I let them know that it's okay to be confused by the decaying of their bodies. I let them know that I will always love them.
