Losing Something Precious

If you have read my blog you know that I have smarted many losses. Recently I again beheld the classic movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” which got me surmising that not all losses pertain to death. Today particularly so many of those quotes whizz through my mind.

I like to think of myself as a tough cookie, then again now with all my wisdom I know that this profound quote hails true with death

“We’re meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?”

Alas, as I have already stated not all losses refer to death. How do you know someone means a lot to you? You know it when your insides feel raw, your heart aches plus races so fast you think its rapid beating will be the end of you. You know by the feeling in your legs that turn them to jelly. You know with the tears welling up that this loss is going to be something pretty immense in your life. Now as quoted from the movie:

“You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go.”  

So to this epic, amazingly incredible, absolutely ingenious, unbelievably intelligent,  strong willed person who lives life knowing that life can only be understood looking backward but it must be lived forward.”

I pronounce via this quote:

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or,  too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”

Then to myself I state Such is Life, the wheel must keep turning even though

“You never know what’s coming for you.”

      You are going to missed so much Kate. An absolute inspiration to us all. I have worked with many bosses but none as kind, intelligent and driven as you. IES is losing an absolute asset. You will be sorely missed.❣❣❣

    Such profound words, Sam. You always seem to put your emotions into words so eloquently. Someone once told me that some people come into our lives for a season and some for a reason. But I think they all leave you with something important.
