“Thank U, Next” by Ariana Grande is one of those songs you can’t help but sing. The song is an ode to past relationships that made Ari who she is today. About the 30th (or so) time I heard the song, I started to think about what I learned from my past relationships and how they’ve shaped who I am today.
Last weekend, I met my longtime girlfriends for an overnight trip at a local vineyard. We’ve been friends for over 15 years. Some of the best times of my life have been in the company of these women. There are so many nights in our past full of laughter, tears, adventures, and love.
