Happy for you…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was at the end of a very long day. I was at peace for a few moments as the sky was painted with amazing colors.

As I drove around a little today in the middle of nowhere I thought a lot about people. I was reminded of those who were very special to me and who slowly faded away. I was also reminded of those who found another way, another path, or, for whatever reason, chose to make the world different for them.

There are a lot of things that I wanted out of life. Some I have gotten and some I have not. If you think about it this is how life is and if you got everything you always wanted it would be pretty boring. That being said there are times that I have experienced significant agony when people have disappeared from my life. I’m not talking about the friend who moved to Germany or the ex-girlfriend that I accidentally found in the columbarium at a cemetery. What I’m talking about is when people find another way and they are gone from your life. What are my thoughts, what comes to mind?

I want them to be happy.

As I was thinking about it perhaps that’s all we should ever want. Perhaps that’s all any of us should ever want. If you truly love someone shouldn’t you want them happy with or without you involved in their life? Maybe we can take a step back and wish someone happiness even if we miss them. Whether friend or love, isn’t it best to say, “I hope they are happy!”?

I know it is hard sometimes. Losing someone special in your life can be devastating, Still, our grief can be a doorway to realizing that we can grow, and in that moment we can realize that our hearts can be broken, but open to someone else finding happiness.

Who cares, right? They are gone, let em suffer or be happy.

Yeah, I can see that, but letting go sometimes gives you the clarity to see further, know further, and with that there is a certain peace. I won’t say it is easy, but I will say that we can be a little better if we let go. Funny, there is a statement about it, something about loving something, setting it free, you know the drill.

So as the sun sets on another day, I hope those who we have known have found their way. I hope those in our lives know how special they are, and I hope the future will be amazing, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy…
