Monday, June 18, 2012
Today is a very special day. It is the birthday of one of my best friends who is no longer here. Though the history between him and I was not perfect and are now only held in memory, forever I will never forget what he has taught me.
Daniel Blaine would have been 26 today, my lucky number. I know he would have called me and talked all about the fun things he did today and went into detail on what he ate, who he saw, and how many solid tricks he did skateboarding...then he would have proceeded to sing obnoxiously loud to some song(ANY song...) until I threatened to hang up on him. Haha. He was the one person I knew that would keep in touch with me and all of his friends because he valued friendship so dearly. He was also one that had an incredible desire for living life in the moment. He may have not lived life like the normal person would, but he was far from normal(I wouldn't of wanted him to be any other way!) and he discovered something else much more difficult to obtain. He discovered fire, burning passion....and it was(IS) inspirational. People say that you meet a person for a reason. This is a piece of why I met Daniel Blaine and only a very small part of what he helped teach me.
He taught me so many things while he was still here. The first thing he taught me was how to love and be loved. I will forever be appreciative of that because my understanding of love and my exercise of it has been more beneficial to me than anything. He showed me that it's not worth being so upset and angry over the little things. I used to get so upset when he would try to make me laugh when I was mad about something minuscule, but he always won because I would end up laughing every time. Through that act alone, I have attempted to stay a positive and uplifting person. I can not even imagine how or who I would be like if I never met him.
I want to keep this short and simple because everything can be a little too complicated if you look into it too deep. This is also just a little reminder to whoever is reading that no matter who walks in or out of your life, they have taught you something. Whether it was good or bad, be appreciative of it. I miss him dearly and wish that he was still here now. He would probably be reading this and laughing at me....but I know that he is watching over me and rooting me on when I feel like giving up or reminding me to stay positive because things do get better.
Thank you for always being you, Blaine. Happy birthday.
