There is this girl.
She is my best friend.
There has never been a person who has made me laugh so hard.
Never been someone who always understands me and supports me the way she does.
I’ve never once had a dull moment with this girl.
Never once felt like I couldn’t come to her with anything.
And I miss her.
Living half way across the country from your person is harder than I imagined.
Last night, I was out with new lovely friends but I still wanted her there.
I always want her there.
I’ve made awesome friends here. I really have, I am so lucky to have found them.
To be quite honest, I think the adjustment would have been too much if we hadn’t come such fast friends.
And I have family here. Family I’ve always dreamed of living near.
But somehow I’m still homesick.
These people I’m surrounded by are amazing.
But they don’t feel quite like home.
My best friends, my parents, my brother, my boyfriend, they are home to me. And no matter where I am, that’s how it’ll be.
I love the people I’m with. I love my new job.
But I really miss the people I’ve always considered home.
Amazing to have found out why it never worked out with anybody else. Maybe I knew all along.
I was a skeptic. I was skeptic for a while.
But then I saw you.
And I knew.
My life is a whirlwind. More than I ever imagined. And the job has barely even started!
School starts in 9 days and I barely have anything figured out.
I cannot wait to meet my students and I’m so terrified and excited for the year to come.
It sucks being away from my friends and boyfriend, but right now, I don’t even have the time to think about it.
I’m thrilled to be near my extended family.
So many thoughts, emotions, stressors, and thoughts.
This is going to be a crazy ride.
It’s crazy, you know.
When you look back onto your life, you can’t help but think, what was I doing?
The person I am today would never have done that. How did that person ever make me happy? How did I think they were my friend?
But then you realize something:
You are the person you are today because of all of those parts of your life.
That bad friend taught you how to be a good one. Or that failed relationship showed you what you don’t want. No matter what it is, every thing has a lesson behind it.
The other day, I accepted failure, I even wrote a blog about it.
And the next day I got the job of my dreams.
Everything happens to teach us something.
Always look back and learn.
