I missed you…

I missed you...

So what can be said about my summer vacation? Returning to the country where I was born, have my earliest memories from and where my roots lie, was a very surreal experience. Especially since I hadn’t been there in almost two decades. I feel like I’ve learned and aged a lot.

After spending time in a place where the living conditions are drastically different from those that I’m used to and seeing people kill each other in the name of religion, culture or just because they feel there is no value for a human life – I was mentally and physically affected.

I have learned that life is too short to hold grudges or be petty. So I apologize. I apologize to you for causing you any grief, for disliking you for any reason or for holding any sort of grudge against you. Rest assured, I no longer feel any of those things. I apologize and I extend my hand for friendship.

I hope all of you have the chance to take a deep breath and reflect. Life is precious, treat it so…even if it’s not yours.

I missed you guys, it’s good to be back! <3

  1. Beautifully said Berry. Glad you are back and got so much out of your journey… because that’s what it sounds like it was. Not a vacation. And speaking from your heart, no matter what the subject with lovely photos to match is why you won a Stylie! <333

  2. *hugs* Sounds like you had a remarkable vacation, even for the experiences. I’ve never been back to the country where I was born even though I would like to see it again, I know that its going to be vastly different from my memories as a child.

    You were missed and it is great to see you back posting on your blog :)

  3. Beautifully said. Life is too short to hold bitterness, and anger. One day, they will all be mere memories, and would fade like a speck of dust in the vast wind of history when we’re dead and gone.

    Welcome back, we all missed you

  15. Welcome back. I certainly missed my daily dose of Berry :-) A year ago today I traveled the world and returned in a different frame of mind. The perspective I gained could never have happened sitting at home and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to truly realize how fortunate I am. xx

  16. […] to pose for me. I really admire his work and the person that he is. I remember a few years ago I did a post that was very emotional and personal to me and not only did he leave an encouraging comment in the post, but he also reached out and messaged […]

  17. […] I missed you – A post I wrote in 2010 when I returned from a two month vacation overseas. It was the first time I ever wrote something so emotional and personal on my Second Life blog. As I was writing that post, tears were just rolling down my face and I was wondering what I was even doing and why was I writing all this, but I felt compelled to. Now I look back on it and I’m a bit embarrassed, but I recall at that time, it really gave me a sense of relief to get that out. […]
