The definition of history I want to talk about according to Definitions.com is a continuous, systematic narrative of past events as relating to particular people. I have history with people that establish one of several levels of friendships. Like with all relationships, the most important ingredient is compatibility. I have friends that I have vast history with yet we seldom have similar opinions. I also have friends that I have very little history with yet we are very connected.
I began to think about my friends after I left Montana from my four month stay from our house fire. I called Montana home from fourteen years old to forty eight. I had great friends and have tried to hold on to most of them. The problem arises when we left to move to Arizona the chains that bind friends rusted and lost their strength. Distance can make the heart grow fonder but it can also loose its interest.
Arizona has become my new home and I don’t feel I want to rebuild history in a new community again. I found good and bad in everyplace I have ever lived. Rebuilding a life required reestablishing history with people. I enjoy reaching back and visiting places I have history with but the longer I stay the less any of them feel like home. I take personal responsibility for my current situation as I feel the older I get the more important friendships are and the more I tend to invest so Arizona will be my permanent home. If you want to know where your history is invested remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
