In order for the next chapter in my life to start, the current one must come to an end. And both accepting that and moving forward with it is something I have been struggling with, but I am accepting it and instead of viewing it as an end, viewing it as a new beginning.
This week has been full of a lot of lasts and a lot of goodbyes, full of laughs, memories, happy moments but also tears. As I say goodbye to some of the people who have helped me become the person I am, I am both saddened and grateful. Saddened because they are all also moving on with their lives, returning to their home countries and I do not know when I’ll see them next. But mostly I am grateful, i am so lucky to have these friends who have become my family. These friends who have opened my mind and have taught me so much about the world. These friends who have helped me change the way I see the world and the way I think. These friends who have made me better.
I know what’s waiting for me next is amazing. But it’s so hard to let go of Barcelona. My friends. My life here.
But I must
Because its the only way to keep going with my life. And I am ready to keep going.
It is not the end, it is only the beginning.
