New levels of conversation

                          When something grows there is usually a change in size whether that’s internally or externally. When we grow it doesn’t always hurt but even stretching can be uncomfortable. But we can’t go on without growth or we’ll be stagnant and maybe even shrivel. Growth might be uncomfortable but it also gives us more room and when we grow we usually fit what we are growing into better. There are lots of things that we need to grow into. Communication is one of those things…. sometimes painful, often uncomfortable and in the very least can be awkward. As we grow up we need to face new levels of conversation. There are things we must face if we are an adult that a child or adolescent can keep running from. Often our first reaction is a sharp one, pain…

To The Unforgotten…

Dear friend,  I have had you on my heart, you come to my mind and visit  my dreams and you would never even know. You would think that I had forgotten you but through  the years I have thought of you at different times and  wondered of your well-being.  It has been so long since I saw you and so many hills,  valleys, mountains and plains have passed between us  but God has journeyed with each of us and He  is the bridge the bridge over all of the still,  peaceful and troubled waters in our lives. I just want you to know that whatever as happened  in your life my heart goes out to you and I am sorry  for your pains and heartaches… None of us can avoid them.  May your heart be healed and mended, gently sewn  together with patches of His love that can fill any  gap well… You don’t have to explain it to me, just know that  you…

I loved it but it also took a lot of time and work and even though it was mostly very pleasant, it’s not sustainable on a long-term basis. Over the last 8 years a LOT has changed in my life and in my circles… they changed completely actually… Learnt some long painful lessons but these were very valuable. You see I was under the delusion that people care more than  they actually do… I know it’s not always the case but its the truth. And it takes something painful to realise and acknowledge that this is a fact. I was involved with a large group of people and I always loved connection, encouraging…

What I would have done…

It doesn’t matter ‘what I would have done’, because when it affects you, it’s what someone else did or didn’t do that you have to work our your feelings over. This is a lesson I have got quite a bit these last few years. For some silly reason I was under the impression that everyone else was just like me and did things how I do but they don’t. It’s especially in those codes of ethic that I try to be as considerate as I can be… but my standards aren’t always going to be yours. I have to learn that, really realise it and then be ok with it. If I don’t like it then I know where my boundaries must lie and so I will move more towards them. It’s all those silly little things, that in the end seem to matter! I try my best to reply…
