August 17th, Thank you for being a friend...
I am sitting her feeling so very, very blessed with the interactions I have been having with friends today. I know some pretty special, amazing people! Particularly, since these are all friends that are not part of my day-to-day circle but originated through my first act. Ironically, at a time I was kind of shooting off my mouth about how ‘when no longer relevant’ it is common, easy to feel forgotten. In defense, I did state I understand – there is only so much time in a day and just because I may not receive a reach out, does not equal a lack of being thought of. I do not fault anyone, though I may have commented – a text takes like seconds. Eat my words!! For, karma has heard me. A restored faith in many relationships remain authentic and for this, the gratitude I feel is overflowing my heart.
The simple gesture of a text, a picture, a response, kindness – should never be underestimated. For me, it is all it takes to give me a boost and quiet voices that tell me let it go, others have moved on, as should I. Which I get, but I am not so sure I ever want to give up on what felt, feels real, just because the conditions are altered. Connection will always matter and there are no one size fits all in establishing and or keeping it. Deep appreciation to those that made my day and humbled me, again!
Hmmm, may I call you a friend…day 35!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
