How to say Goodbye to a Friend…

2014 for my was the year of saying goodbye, to a lot of things, the most important: Friends, sure I made strong bonds with a few more but it doesn’t make it any easier, Sandy is leaving, she is moving to Cancun, she received a Job offer she can’t refuse and I honestly think it’s the best for her, she will be finally doing full time the thing she loves.

She was part of the amazing trio which was Tere (My BT), Sandy and I, I can’t remember exactly how we started to hang out, I mean at least the 3 of us, I guess it just happened organically, each brought something to the group, and looking back, we were so different not only from eachother but from within.

In May we lost Tere physically forever and now I am losing Sandy which I must say I’m glad it’s not forever but it’s far, and far is not close and I am going to miss her, the second piece of the trio is going away leaving the last part here.

I am fine, I am happy for her and I am thinking on the positive side of things, I am not losing a friend I am saying see you later to one and I know she will do amazingly there, however it makes me want to do something and do it now.

I need to start doing the things I love instead of just thinking about doing them, blog more, travel more, take more pictures, just do more…

This post is not making much sense, it helps though to let everything go, get it out of my head…

It’s funny how old/new faces can turn around your life and get a different perspective, During my year abroad I met several people, from several countries and the relationships just flowed, it wasn’t forced it just was. It’s funny because you live with all this people for 6 months and hang out with them, have dinner, breakfast, lunch, karaoke nights and then we just simply are not able to hang out, mostly because we are on the other side of the world from each other. Facebook will be the most we get to kind of hang out.

It’s been 5 years and this year was a good one for meet and greets, in may I met Dan at New York, we spent the day together we chatted, ate and it was pretty good, I have to admit I was afraid it would not flow after 5 years, but it turns out that was not a problem at all. It was funny because we only hung out in Leeds and this was a completely different enviroment, so it was familiar but it was also not it was good.

This time around on Sunday Melinda and Pep from Australia made their way to here, the place I call home, It’s just so great to see them, to chat, to have tea, just like the old times, it’s great how this little visit, even when I can’t spend as much time as I’d like with them, came to refresh the air to my life, change my routine a little, it’s interesing exciting and makes me feel at peace. I do believe there is a reason why they came this year and now, life took some things away from me, but It also gave me gifts…

I feel lucky, because I was able to live all that, and I am able to live all this experiences that make you feel at home, after all they were my home away from home, and it’s just amazing how people who might have a completely different background can be so alike, so familiar, so like family…

I can’t wait to meet the next Luptoner the Universe will put in my way again.
