This may be my toughest goal….
Too close to my heart to write much about this.. only that past efforts were not well received, and I thought walking away was better for my health and my own well being…
After a call from another relative, that I was very close to – once, it hit me hard that I’m ‘losing’ this person too, and I can’t let that happen, I just can’t.
with a friend – and so many laughs last week with her, while hiking with her. A minor misunderstanding, and she is the sort that forgives easily..
So glad that we ‘talked’ it out, and she understood, what I had to contend with at the time.
Big hugs were had, and more plans to socialize and I feel like we are back on track to more fun times! Plans for this weekend together.
from someone that used to socialize a fair bit with, but we had a minor misunderstanding (or so I thought). And completely my fault… She has been on my mind a great deal recently…
I’ve responded to her email, and apologized, stating I’d like to apologize in person and invited her for dinner/coffee soon.
Maybe just getting it out to the ‘universe’ is what one needs to do…?
She is a gem, and so rare to find those types of people. I will be so very happy if she is one of those that can ‘forgive’ with a simple apology.
because I ‘need’ to keep seeing this goal on my list!! It shall serve my reminder to not take the people in my life for granted..
To continue to reach out to those people in my life, and be grateful for those in my life.
To keep in touch with people, touch base with friends & family more often.
To heal a relationship that is so broken, I’m not sure if there is any hope .. and that pains me. Not sure what to do about it, but as another family member said recently, ‘you need to ‘fix’ this’.. and I keep thinking I wish I could, but how ?
Re-connections aren’t always possible, but I shall keep trying!
And being good to the people that are in my life, my friends that have been ‘there’ for me, and new friendships I’ve made that have been amazing!
- Called my sis today, a good conversation, I’ll see her this afternoon. Yay!
- Have really reconnected again with H. We’ve made plans for this weekend to get together on Sat. And we got together 2 wkends ago and have some plans for some outings later.
Small progress, the biggie reconnection I truly want, hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know how best to approach it, and the more time passes, the harder it becomes. And really too much time has passed, to not resolve this!
with happiness today…
I have found a long lost friend through Facebook just today! I had been searching for her for a few years now, never finding her. The only reason today I found her is because I had a dream about her last night! I figured I needed to give it one more try. Well later I happened to log on when she was online later in the day, and received her message.
Wow! So happy.. I’ve missed this friend a great deal! I hope to get together with her and just maybe we will reconnect. Wouldn’t that be lovely? At least my attempt ‘re-found’ her worked!
I bravely phoned a friend I had not spoken to in a while… (for too long!)
Because of it, we had a wonderful ‘catch up’ conversation, and next weekend we are going to head out to the mountains for the day, like we so often used to do! Yay!
In 2011 I intend to make more of a conscious effort to mend some fences, and attempt to reconnect more deeply to family that I’ve taken for granted.
Some may be successful, others may not. But I want to at least try!
I was lucky enough to reconnect with a friend from many years back just this year, and it one of those moments, that made my heart sing, to hear her voice, and laugh together – once again!
Someone has to be the first one to reach out, and it might as well be me!
