If there’s one thing I did quite a lot in this holiday, that would be going back and looking at my stuff from before…by this I mean, checking my history on Facebook, my old albums, chat histories, and I even stumbled upon Plurk a few days ago and saw all the funny stuff we wrote about before… 😛 My favorite was seeing my post about how excited I was about UW 🙂
I know what you are thinking- I have too much time on my hands? 😉 But this is the kind of stuff I can only do during holidays, when I feel like I finally have time and don’t feel as guilty to “waste” my time. 😛 And I’m a pretty nostalgic person, so I actually like to look back at my old stuff…
After coming to college, it becomes more and more apparent that many relationships don’t last– even the ones that you thought would be your soul mate or “BFF”. I used to feel sad when I look back at my old stuff and realize how much it has changed, or even feel stupid how much I cared for this person who obviously doesn’t care as much. Other times, I feel guilty and regret that I haven’t put as much effort into maintaining my friendship, and then I feel, “wow, I can’t imagine how close we were before.”
But honestly, everything happens for a reason. If these people don’t end up being part of your life, they are probably not meant to be and all of us may be better off and happier with the new life we have right now. I don’t mean it in a mean way- I mean, people who would like to be part of your life would make the effort, and if not, they must be happier with their other friends or people around them now, which is a wonderful thing, right? : ) Besides, we move around so much and it’s normal for people to move on.
While I was looking back at my memory, I found myself smiling or giggling to our old conversation. I can tell, and I remember, that I was happy- happy with their support and accompany. I also saw how comforting and encouraging they were when I needed them, and without them I probably would have been so depressed during those times.
So no matter how much has changed now, I know for a fact that these people made me happy and for that, I really thank them. ♥♥♥
Since it’s the holidays now, I figured it would be fitting to talk about how thankful I am for the people around me…
So if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you know me- so I just want to say I honestly appreciate everyone who has been part of my life and gave me all the happy memories 🙂 And I can really say from the deep of my heart that I wish all of you the best and I hope you know how thankful I am! : )
AND, for those of you who are still huge parts of my life, accept me for who I am, and continue to give me these beautiful memories and support, I am definitely more than thankful. I always feel like wherever I am or whatever I’m doing, what matters the most is always the people. So thank you- you mean so much for me. ♥
I once read this quote that basically says,
“No one is perfect. Everything is two sided- if you love his look and charm, you have to accept that other girls may too. If you love his intelligence, you may have to accept to feel more stupid around him. If you love how loyal he is to his family and friends, you know you can’t have him around you all the time. At the same time, you are not perfect and have lots of flaws too. So if someone loves you and accepts you for who you are, feel lucky and appreciate him.”
This is obviously talking about relationship, but I think it applies to any type of relationships so I thought I’d share. ♥ 🙂
Happy Holidays everyone and Happy New Year!
