I hope you had a great day everyone. I did. It was a pretty hectic day, but a very good one nonetheless. I started my day by sending an apology via text. Got into some silly fight with my ex yesterday. Yes it's ridiculous that our relationship is over, dead, done. Yet for some reason we fight. We can fight for Africa. Jesu! I think it's some warped attempt to convince ourselves that we're mature adults and can move on seamlessly into an amicable, amiable friendship. But unfortunately this is real life and let's be realistic, that's not very realistic. I mean we broke up less than two months ago, it was very abrupt and unexpected meaning things were kinda unfinished and emotions were not dead, at least mine weren't. So yesterday we got into this really senseless fight (as we do almost everytime we try to have a friendly conversation) and he got me so riled up that i said something to him which obviously hit a nerve. I apologized yesterday. He wasn't having it. I told myself well whatever, after all he caused it and besides we're not dating anymore so what's even the point?
But I woke up this morning and it was the first thing on my mind so I immediately sent a text saying I'm sorry about yesterday I was angry etc etc etc.
And honestly my day couldn't have been better. It taught me a lot. Someone might have said "but you know it wasn't your fault so why apologize" or "why can't he apologize?", but sometimes we do these things for ourselves.
Negative energy (anger, resentment, unforgiveness etc) really has a way of weighing and slowing you down. Whether my apology was accepted or not, I felt so light and liberated knowing I wouldn't be carrying the weight of anger on my shoulders.
So yes, that really set the tune for me day. It's been light and full of pleasant surprises and I can't stop smiling. This our father is amazing sha. Kai!
I'm home now and reading through my journal from several months back. Something I read from 2015 really got me thinking so I decided to ask you, what is something that has happened in your life that you never thought would or could happen to you?
I would really love to know.
It could be good or bad. Could be significant or ordinary. It could be happy or sad. .
We've all had a few things that we see or hear or imagine happen, but never thought it could ever happen to us. And then it did. The kind of thing that (we thought) only happens to somebody else... If you can relate to this please share your experiences with me.
