T is for Tigger: T-i-double-ga-rrr
Tigger has always been my favorite Disney character.
He's playful, upbeat, and downright funny!
Perhaps I resonate with him most now as I am saying good-bye to friends in Chico for a while.
Although, it's really not good-bye. Tigger would say: "TTFN -- Ta Ta for now!"
That's the best thing about Tigger, in my opinion. His optimism actually physically manifests into his bouncy nature.
I see it that way now, as I feel sad at times leaving what I have here... like tonight, when I unexpectedly welled up with tears saying farewell to such a dear friend. In times when my heart thought it could not open up and be vulnerable with another bestie, I was proven wrong with this loyal, bright spirit. My tears were just evidence of the gratitude in my heart for this person!
As I drove home, the lyrics to one of my songs in the past came to mind.
The upbeat and inspiring message of this song made me smile.
Just like Tigger, I'm ready to look forward, stay excited about the path to come, and relish in the fact that everything is possible for my future.
The good news is, we've got great technology these days so I can stay in touch with my dear friends in Chico... and around the world!
Here's to enjoying the ride!
