I've moved ten times within four states in the first eleven years of my life. I've said good-bye to best friends and influential teachers, favorite spots to read and a few great ice cream shops. Initially I always regretted having to leave behind comforts but then I realized there are so many better things to say good-bye to. When you move, when you start anew, say good-bye to all the ****** things. Say farewell to all the times that you felt lost, leave behind all of the old bruises and scars (although it is a good idea to remember and learn from them, it's better they stay in the past) Bid "adieu" to every instance you felt less than whole. Rid yourself of these unnecessary weights on your chest and move on, taking a new breath as you go.
