At the fun age of 29 plus a few, I find myself having no living grandparents. I have a wonderful grandmother in law, but mine are gone.
I never realized before how much I relied on grandparents knowledge for things over the years. Little daily things that they bestowed advice for that saved more time with the kids instead. Ways to cook more efficiently that somehow tasted better then any recipe I followed!
The hands on my shoulder when I faced something difficult. The smile that gave me the courage to keep pushing through the hard times. The never ending pictures and stories to fall back on when the days were slower.
Why don’t we notice how much we rely on this, how much we LOVE this, until it’s too late??
Hug your parents and grandparents. Take those pictures. Spend that time. It goes too fast.
Missing them always. 😢💔
They always say when one door closes another will open.
I’ve heard multiple ways for that saying but that is the one I heard the most.
There is nothing wrong with making decisions to change things up to fit your desires better.
Who cares if its a job, a city, a lover or a friendship. You are not stuck anywhere or with anyone. They are all a few choices away from being different. When you decide to be free to make your own decisions the whole world opens up to you.
The question is how long will it take you to decide to make the change?
Will it take you even longer to accept it and forgive yourself for it?
There are a few things I have learned in life, without needing to randomly question it.
Here is the most important.
Everyone needs to have that group of people that they can just unload on without worry. Sometimes its just one person, sometimes its ten of them.
Life without them however is not ok.
They stand by you when you go through a breakup. They are right there when you fail that test, again. They don’t judge when you drop plans because you aren’t in mood (unless you do that too much.) They just get you. They don’t hesitate to call or show up at the wrong time.
They know that life brings high points, laughter, and great memories.
They also know that there will be bad times. Low times. Bad diagnoses, deaths, tears and heartbreak’s.
And yet they stay, through all of it.
Those people are vital. ❤
