As I sit on the plane writing this note I’m reflecting on the past two weeks I have been dismissing people who do not provide my life with any value, meaning, or substance. Some people do not even realize they’ve been dismissed, but in time you will. I understand that people come into your life for whatever reason. Some come into your life to teach you a valuable lesson, and others are a blessing from God.
I had someone send me a message on yesterday and it made me think about the lessons of 2014. After reading the long message I simply replied “Message received. Take care.” A few people this year became my lesson.
The thing about a lesson is once you learn them, you don’t have to revisit them again. Through my experiences and practice I encourage you to live boldly, and love hard because it’s an amazing experience. Don’t be afraid to be transparent with the individuals who have your best interest at heart.
The people who are not concerned about you then it’s perfectly fine to guard your heart, and dismiss them. Living in the here and now is ultimately the best thing we can do. Errors make you human, and you don’t always have to be strong to be strong. Sometimes our strength is expressed in being vulnerable. Give everything and have no regrets.
Everything happens for a reason. Don’t stress the could haves. If it should have, it would have. I’m headed to my mom so we can start cooking for thanksgiving. Now we have one month left to finish the book of 2014. Make the last chapter a good one 😘
