In the long term

My best friend just got married today.

I still remember how excited she was about her husband for the first time. It was a long, long time ago, and their paths did not cross for a while. Borders, work, languages and a long distance were between them. But they got it on. On the long term.

Anita, Kubu, I am so happy for you two tonight! I hope everything went as you wished, even against all the obstacles. You two have been through so much, and I am so proud of you to finally tie the knot – even though I believe you know, for me, it’s the engagement that’s the big decision. 🙂

I am sending all the good vibes your way, and wish for you two to be happy and in love no matter what the future brings. You can count on me in case you need a partner in crime, someone to hit you with a monkey, if you need a shoulder to cry on, or a crazy friend suggesting all the silly things from outside of the box. 😉
I love you both a lot! Take good care of each other. (…or I’ll kick your ass 😉 )

Collecting the pieces

As a friend of mine has once said: Life itself means changing. Nowadays, I am sorting the pieces of my giant puzzle, trying to figure out which piece should stay and which one needs to go.

Tabula rasa – a clear slate is beautiful and challenging. We live and we learn. Hopefully.
