Ariana Koehler: Only a ‘See You Later’ Not a ‘Goodbye’

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

One thing I absolutely love is traveling!  You get to see new places, experience new things, and meet new people.  However, traveling does come with its downfalls.  When you are always on the go, you can not stay in one place forever.  The difficult thing about this is always having to say goodbye.

I have friends in many places, and that has been such a blessing.  However, sometimes I am only able to see some of them every few months or even every few years.  This definitely isn’t easy, especially since I have been able to develop a lot of good relationships with these friends.

So what keeps me going?  How am I able to still hold onto these friendships?  What I always remember is that every goodbye is simply just a “See ya later.”  I know that I will see everyone again someday, and that when we next see each other we will be able to pick up right where we left off.  This is always a reassuring feeling for me.  In the meantime, I always stay in touch with everyone by phone and over Facebook.
