"Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is the right time." --Asha Tyson
I bid farewell to summer this weekend by taking a mini getaway to a lake in Maine with a few of my oldest friends. It was the perfect way to close what can only be described as an utter rollercoaster of a summer. I see my friends' Facebook statuses declaring that this was "the best summer EVERR" and though I can't agree I can certainly say that it was interesting.

I keep thinking of Eat Pray Love, when Liz is imagining dancing with her ex-husband. He tells her he misses her, and she replies: "So miss me. Send me love and light every time you think of me... Then drop it. It won't last forever. Nothing does." That sounds like a good alternative to missing.

|Bye, Summer. Can't say I'll miss you too.|
