New opportunities.

I am thankful for a new opportunity to reconnect with a friend who I have not spoken to in over 18 months. It was a little awkward but it shows to me that I have grown and was able to fly from the guidance that I received in the summer of 2011 when I was afraid that I could not.

During that summer, I was told that I have great potential and that is true.
During my conversation and recalling our memories of who we knew and some of the things we did and said became a little awkward.
I do have a heart of forgiveness but at times I want to hold onto a card and not release it fully to the deck of life.  For when that happens, it will be hard to play a full game if I am asked to later on.

It shows I still have a growing edge.
And as the scripture says in 2 Cor 5:17, the old has gone and the new has come.
Just like when one buys a new computer or car or starts off in love, there is that examining phase and looking at the object or prized possession or relationship from many different angles.

And the angle that I am looking at now is not to label someone as former or ex and that can pertain even to where I used to work for 20 years. If I look at things from a leveling playing field, I may actually be providing depth and more possibilities than I thought were possible.

And maybe then the awkwardness will melt more and I will live out my life out of the vast potential that I do have within my very soul and psyche!!!

Thank you for this opportunity to open up and share and listen to your laughter and help my friend and I stir the soil in our lives.

Scott, I have known you 25 years and there is not a summer that goes by that I have not seen you grow and thrive in new situations. I understand full well the awkwardness of your circumstance you describe in this post. I commend you on getting through it and hope the friendship was mended. You are such a great writer. It is a privilege to know you. It was then. It is now. God Bless You. :) Bianca
