There are many changes happening around me. Some good, some not so good. Some of my friends are moving to new roles, some, to new organizations, to new things in life. I know I will miss some of the things that used to be. I hope some things will work out better this year, compared to last.
What surprises me, is the realization that I feel I am going to miss some people though I know I will still see them often. It is very weird, that a change, however minute, still affects us if we are attached to something and we don't want to let go. For some, it is people. For some, it is work. A role. A position, maybe a friend. If something changes, it affects us. The change may not trigger any other displacement in the sequence of events that happen in our everyday lives. Still, it affects us.
Sometimes, the most profound thoughts are formed when you are actually not thinking.
I know, that there are several incidents which make us feel sad on parting, quite a few moments that we want to hold on to forever. When we think of these moments, it makes us almost not go. But remember at these times, that the beauty of a moment, is in the fact that it is fleeting. As we try to hold on to it, it slips away from our hands..this makes us cherish the moment even more. Moments turn into memories, that remain with us forever.
This date may be our last in one chapter of our life , tomorrow may be our first in a new chapter. While dates come and dates go, Moments are forever. Dates are for strangers to remember, friends remember moments.
To all those friends who are moving away to new challenges, new roles, new organizations, new phases in their lives .. All the very best. Maybe we will be in touch, maybe we will not. But the memories of the moments we created together, will always remain!
