i think that's what i need sometimes.. distance. alone time. separation from the things i love. i know you're supposed to appreciate everything you're blessed with all the time but honestly, even though i'd like to, i just don't. but being away from something or someone for a while makes the times that you do get to have them around all that much more precious. beautiful. exciting. or even painful.. because of the cheek and stomach aches from laughing or smiling too hard.
catching up with old friends and realizing that you're picking up exactly where you left off is what i live for.
