These are Words That I Have ALWAYS Wanted to Say

August 07, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

We have been wonderfully privileged with technology that connects us to people half way around the world in ways we never had before. Cell phones, Facebook, Twitter, Google… All avenues to keep people in touch. We are now able to see what somebody is doing in Europe while we are eating dinner in Texas.

We all sometimes take these connections for granted or abuse the power that comes with such privileges.

This blog post came to me at an incredibly random time (I sometimes think I may have undiagnosed ADD…), but I had to stop and write it down before it ran away from me.

I wanted to take the time to reflect on my life and the relationships I have cultivated over my few years that I’ve been on this earth. I can definitely say that I have been fortunate enough to be able to write about it and have been able to come across a multitude of incredible and unique individuals that have made a difference in my life one way or another.

Although there are many who I haven’t spoken to in a long time, I had a compelling feeling within me to reach out to each and every one of those people that have walked with me in the past, who continue to walk with me in the present, and those who I will walk with in the future.

As simple as the following words may be, they come from the very depths of my imperfect heart and soul and are spoken with absolute truth and meaning:

  • To those I have hurt in any way: I humbly apologize and beseech your forgiveness.
  • To those who have hurt me: I forgive you.
  • To those who I don’t reach out to enough: I cherish the time we spent together.
  • To those who I consider my close friends and family: I love you more than you could ever imagine.
  • To those who I will meet in the future: I can’t wait till our paths cross :)

Photo was also taken while in Boston! While exploring the city, we came across a lot of brick buildings and I couldn’t NOT take a fun artsy picture…

Thanks to the ever growing popularity of social media, I have been able to connect with those who I haven’t seen or spoken to in many, many years. I absolutely LOVE getting to see where life takes everybody!

As I go through life creating more and more relationships, I like to remember those I’ve already had. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. Regardless of whether or not they’ve lasted, each and every single one of them have shaped me into the person I am today.

Same goes for you. Take some time to reflect on the relationships you’ve had and currently have.  You’d be amazed at how uplifting and emotionally opening it can be for you :)

THANK YOU FOR BEING A SIGNIFICANT PART OF MY LIFE!
