Facebook memories are challenging sometimes. But today, I look at this with a smile on my face and only a few tears.
It’s not that I don’t miss him. I do. It’s just different now.
This was the sunset after Adam’s memorial skydive.
This was the sunset on Planet Green Socks as I knew it then, and on my time in the skydiving industry.
This was the sunset on an extremely difficult chapter of my life. With Adam’s physical body permanently part of the sky, a new wave of healing followed this sunset.
That healing continues today.
Things are still settling here since I returned from Paris but, admittedly, I feel more connected to Adam now than I have in the past two years.
There is still pain, but now I’m not holding on to the pain as a memory of him.
Now, I am connected to his spirit, his life, his lessons, his purpose.
Planet Green Socks was a necessity. It got me out of a toxic work environment and on the road to becoming the woman I am today, the woman I’m meant to be.
I feel more connected to the lessons he taught me, the two most important being that “you only get so many sunsets” and “live your dash” – dash between your birth date and day of death, where life actually happens.
Adam’s last status on Facebook was a quote by Mae West:
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
I can get down with that.
