Goodbyes

Goodbye is never easy.
Today I say goodbye from work for a colleague, which is hard enough. This follows from last night saying goodbye to one of my aunties two pet pugs.

This juxtaposition is confronting and brings a stark reality to the temporary aspect of all our relationships. We are here for a time, we interact with people or creatures, we move on.

We can hope to bring something positive to the lives we touch.

I can be confident that my mate Alan has been a positive impact on my life so far. I know that my aunties dog had a deep impact on her life, her grandchildrens life, and the life of her other dog.

I hope the people I leave behind, can be as positive when I move on.

Onto a better job and new home!!

    there’s no such thing as ‘goodbye’ for good friends, there’s only ‘until we meet again’
