When asked what came to mind when thinking of you... “Authentic, honest, a beacon of light,” is what I said from the heart and without thought or hesitation... Yet and still, those three things are only a small part of all that you are in these eyes. Extremely thankful for that question because we often wait too late to express the impact a persons essence has on our lives. What was accomplished in the life someone had, once their time here is over, is often heavily emphasized out of respect and sometimes even a desperate desire to have something...anything... positive to celebrate when it comes to them. But even a pig can do a deed. Even a pauper can have the spirit of an angel. So, this is not to be mistaken, this is about the essence. Maya Angelou once said “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.” The new age wave of pseudo-positivity may translate that as having to be close to incapable of flaws or mistakes in order to be seen as the yang to the yin. False.
Regardless of being on the same page or not, on the same track or not, seeing eye to eye or not, constantly in touch or not... Essence transcends the daily ups and downs that are likely to be forgotten as life goes on. The air of all that you are goes beyond your interactions with just one person in particular or with any person at all. It’s not about me, it’s not about them. It’s about you. Your soul is your soul regardless of the changes of faces, seasons, environments, life. I am not alone in feeling a lightness at the thought of you.
