A Release in the Tension

Last weekend I almost decided not to go visit one my friends of the heart, I'm so glad that I chose to let go of the stress and worry of school and perfection for 36 hours.

Have you ever been around someone who just gets you completely and allows you to be completely yourself without leaving you there or pushing you away for it? We are at vastly different junctures in our journies, yet somehow the lessons we need to learn are the same...

One of our adventures was to go to the Historic Dave Matthews/ Allman Brother's concert. It was a blast! We both needed a moment to soak in, wrestle with, and then release the tension of life. Releasing it through music, dancing, laughter, living, and breathing.

It took me a while to post this because I hit the ground running when I returned to Raleigh... this morning I took some time to release and reflect. Its important to have those moments, especially since I feel like I am driving through Idaho.

well said! True friendship is one of god's greatest gifts to us. It helps us understand and get through this crazy life. I think Baz Lurhmann said it best
"Understand that friends come and go,
but for the precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle
because the older you get,
the more you need the people you knew when you were young"
