A Reflection

Yesterday was a sad day for me. One year ago, a friend died in a car accident. He wasn't just a friend, he was a good friend at one time and the first boyfriend I ever really cared about.

His death was one of the main reasons I started this blog. There were so many thoughts in my head that I just couldn't get them out on paper and I was having trouble with trying to talk to people about them and I needed a place to release. I have to say I didn't really ever end up talking about his death directly on here, but in some way it provided comfort.

His death was a sudden reminder that nothing is promised to you in life. Things do not always turn out like you think they might and you are not promised another day, another hour, another minute. You can not go back and say the things that were left unsaid.

Somethings in life do not make sense and it will drive you crazy to try to find the reasoning for everything that has ever happened to you no matter how hard you try. Somethings will always be a mystery.

I discovered that letting go is one of my biggest obstacles in life. I also learned that it is a big necessity.

His death taught me to be thankful for what I have and for the things in life that I have gotten and hopefully will get to experience that he never did and never will.

His death showed me what a strong faith his family had in God. They amazed me by actually celebrating his homecoming. Something I was too selfish to do at the time. I think about them a lot and about the pain they must experience every single day.

Most of all, his death taught me that unfortunately life will always bring change and you won't always be ready.


  1. Oh that is sooo sad. It amazes me how some people can be so poised and mature when losing someone they love. I don't think I would be so good at it.

  2. I'm so sorry about your friend--one year later the pain is still real, I totally understand that. Life is never promised to us, and its so sad, and scary...

    I'm glad you started this blog :)

  3. I'm so sorry he died much too early. That kind of shock is so hard to understand.

  4. {{{hugs}}} i am so sorry you had to go through this. this was very well written and very true.

  5. I understand how you feel. Death of a friend or a loved one always open our eyes to how unpredictable life is and how we should live in the moment. Take care! {Hugs}
