I woke up this morning and laid in bed for at least two hours, just me and my thoughts, I finally popped up at 5:36 AM and began to pen yet another goodbye. The words were too painful to write, so I hopped out of bed and turned on the computer and began to type the most recent of many goodbyes. This year has been the year of the goodbye for me. I have changed careers, let go of friends, issues, etc. ’07 like ’06 began as a year in which the only thing I was sure of was the end would not look like the beginning. Here I am mid-year continuing to let go, is this a sign of maturity or a sign of enough finally being enough, I believe it is a sign of both. Goodbye can mean both until next time or farewell; time will tell and God already knows the categories of my countless goodbyes.
