Quote: Celebrate what is instead of focusing on what’s missing and the things you want most will come to fruition.
Relationships with people mean more to me than any material experience that the world has to offer and I’ve been privileged to have many of both. I’m grateful for the parts of the world that I have seen and the beauty that I have experienced but nothing beats a deep and meaningful conversation with someone you love. There are many different kinds of love - one I enjoyed the most was walking with Lauren during the Pandemic. We calm our nerves, solve the problems of the day, and build a bond that runs deeper with each mile. Before she came home that year, I used to wish for a partner to walk with because sometimes it felt lonely. Since I never saw it coming that she would be home for 5 months, I also know that I have no idea what my future holds. Whatever is missing can be added at any time and whatever is there now is not guaranteed to last forever. Understand what you value and put in the work, both success and deep satisfaction lie on the other side.
