This is Peanut Butter Brickle. We left that Disney campground place yesterday. And I have to admit, I had a few tears in my eyes. Or maybe that was bacon grease.
In any which way, I didn’t expect to have so much fun there. I didn’t expect that me having fun would cheer up the persons. And I didn’t expect to forget sadness and missing my brother Digby for just a few moments. I felt a little guilty about having fun at first. Especially at the dog park there.
But when another dog that reminded me of Digby came in the park, my sadness came back.
I realized that I missed him more than I even thought. I realized that this is going to take a long time to feel even a little better to the point I can talk about Digby with a smile instead of tears. The persons tell me that there will be bad days and not so bad days. They tell me that missing him will be the norm now. And I don’t know what to do with that.
At the beginning of our travels, I wouldn’t even have cared about that Disney campground place. But I have changed. And well, things hit different now. I like attractions. Stuff to see in addition to hiking. I like feeling like I am more of a part of what persons do. I don’t know why I have changed but the persons say that’s ok.
All of us have likes and dislikes. And maybe when we are around our family we forget our individuality sometimes.
Digby and I were so close that it was hard to tell what each of us liked.
But now, my personality is becoming more dependent on me. Things are hitting different right now. But that’s because life is different right now.
When things change, and we change, even because of circumstances out of our control, we may be sad. And that’s ok. But try to see the different parts of your personality. Your you.
Open your mind to what you truly like even if you surprise yourself. Like me.
I’ll miss Disney. But I know we will be back. And the persons say they are going to find me brand new things to try. And that’s something I can look forward to.
