The difference a year makes.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Last year at this time I was going through one of the most emotional times of my career and life. A situation at work proved to be a catalyst in a deteriorating friendship and I was an emotional wreck.

Tony was my absolute number one supporter and encouraged my thoughts of a career change.

I can't believe it was already a year ago. It feels like just yesterday.

Currently the friendship has once again dissolved, this time with apathy instead of pain, I pursued a career change I had no desire to follow and it is now my turn to support Tony as he contemplates a career change.

So much the same and totally different.

You and Tony are luck to have each other, esp. during times like this. Crazy how so much can change in 1 yr, yet stay the same, you know?

Thinking about you and Tony - you have had quite the year, I hope this next year will bring only good change!

It's so wonderful to have a rock to lean on. One thing for sure is change is inevitable and just when you think it's over, it only happens again. I will be praying for you and hoping this new change is a good change!

and I totally understand about losing friends. I have gone through some of that myself. Sometimes its for the best even though it may not feel like it at the time.

I think losing friends as you get older is a natural course, not that it's ever easy. People grow apart and can change. The good news is that you sometimes encounter new people in your life with whom you develop friendships.

Good luck to Tony on his career change. I'm sure it won't be an easy time, but you guys seem to have such a solid relationship that I'm sure you'll get through it.

It is amazing to look back at a year ago and see how things can be so different yet so much the same. Such is life I guess. You've come through so much and I'm sure it's made you an even stronger person!

I always feel a little bit in awe when I look back on the year past but it's a good feeling of growth and change.

But then again sometimes I feel as though life hasn't changed at all.

I guess this is why we are always perplexed by our existence.

Life is always throwing you curves isn't it! I think that it just brings you closer together...I'll be praying for you both!

What an awesome opportunity to do the same thing for the man you love! You are truly blessed to have each other - but you already know that :)
