Andrew left for Adelaide on Thursday morning, as we said bye I went to work making a conscious effort not to think about the journey in front of us or the fact that Andrew was no longer in Melbourne. I was fine until I came home from work and found a note he left for me on the kitchen table. Then I was sad. But it’s fine, I’m fine, he’s fine and I am happy that all this has finally started. Like most things in life, the anticipation is worse then it actually happening. Andrew had his first day of uni on Friday and was extremely happy that he wasn’t the oldest person there. There are about 10 people who are older than Andrew. One man starting medicine is 41 and has 3 children, how amazing is that!
Tonight I was talking to a regular at the dog park who is from Brazil, telling him about Andrew and this 41 year old man and he said, ‘This is such an amazing country, you can start your life over whenever you want, regardless of age. You could never do that in Brazil.’ It’s so true, we can all start over whenever we want, every single day is a new day, a day to change the course of our lives, to break old habits and form new ones, to be kinder, to slow down, to be more adventurous, to be happy. A new day equals new possibilities.
Hope you had a great weekend, have an even greater week.
^ Hi Saturday.
^ Snuggles. Whenever there is another dog in our apartment, Toby is so affectionate and clingy with me, he won’t leave my side. As soon as the dog (whoever it may be, besides Ruby) leaves, Toby doesn’t care too much for me any more.
