Sometimes, in your day to day life, there are moments when you realize that, all around you, amazing things are happening.
I don’t know if it’s the fact that the warmth of spring has sent a burst of energy and awareness through me, or that I’ve been so active. I can still feel the adrenaline pushing through my veins, and the rush of the sky above and below me. I can smell the chlorine on the clothes thrown on my floor, and the bass rhythms of music clouding my ears. Then, there’s the memory of chants between friends, and the way we all held on to the moment together, like it was never going to end and it was ending right then. All at the same time.
It’s hard not to think about how we’re not always going to be this way. That, with time, we’ll all change cities. We’ll try new worlds. We’ll prioritize our goals. We’ll move in with lovers. We’ll meet new people. We’ll be in different places in so many different ways.
And maybe this is me just being nostalgic, realizing what I have with all of you, holding on to the millions of memories we’ve made together, and fearing that life may never be the same as it was this past weekend, month, or year. And maybe I’m overreacting, and maybe I’m right. Maybe it’s not supposed to be the same as we learn and grow and become who we’re supposed to be, but I just want you to know that I have loved what we’ve had.
I’ve loved every minute of us.
