we have a shared season that ends each year around this time. it effects us all differently and yet, we still feel some of the same joys and pains. with ourselves freed from one building and let into the world for a few months - or if this was your last season - freed forever. we experience freedom we've never known and we become vulnerable all over again. when we leave this place we miss the ones we've left. if we stay behind, we miss the one's who'll continue on and find themselves all over again.
if you're like me, you'll be left in the backround. we'll watch from a distance as our friends find themselves and we'll impatiently await our turn to come in a year from now, when our next season ends and another begins.
i'll miss these nights where all we do is laugh and drink coffee and read pieces that make us feel things we forgot ever existed. i'll miss the themes and the food and most importantly the people whom i never knew before this one love brought us all together. acquaintances became odd friendships, and odd friendships grew to a trust that none of us ever imagined because we all lived in the moment.
for now i'll wait until we meet again because that's all i can do. i can't stop time for my selfish reasons so we can all hold on to this season a little longer. we have to move forward, and blossom into something new and vibrant and something that doesn't exist by staying in one season.
"Many of the most significant moments in our lives come not because it all went right, but because it all fell apart." - Rob Bell
