For me the long weekend in Marbella with Barbara was the best in a long time – I have been so happy to see her and then additionally, I got the chance to teach my own little Yoga sunrise/sunset series on the beach. I will write more about the Yoga teaching part on my blog alexaspranayoga.wordpress.com.
When I wasn’t teaching Yoga, I enjoyed the happiness and energy that I got out of it and soaked in the valuable moments with Barbara – they will have to be enough for another year more or less. We were going with the flow during those 4 days that we had together and did what we felt was best in every moment. And we ended up keeping some traditions alive – like the special Frozen Yoghurt that we used to get in Madrid when we were living there together or taking happy and sad faced pictures at the end of our time together.
Friendship doesn’t count time or space – when you are connected you will feel the same way even if you haven’t seen each other for a long time. But of course, staying connected during the time you cannot be in the same place helps. Even though I miss our weekly fixed Skype dates that we used to have during my time at university, our ritual of sending each other our moment of the day every day is a perfect replacement and we get so much value from it – not only for our friendship, but also for ourselves.
