“There aren’t many things in life, more exhilarating than that of a deep connection.” #StuffRareSays
After a few weeks of introspection, I started remembering.
Moments, people, and situations in life that stood out and defined me.
These reflections led me down the path to…
Reaching out to an old friend.
“Didn’t. Even. Skip. A beat.”
There is a reason I stated recently,
“God shows us our enemies before he blesses us.”
Not because I heard it somewhere or because I think I know something more…
Because I experienced it firsthand upon discovering my frenemies true colors one dark and gloomy evening.
“Jealousy can make a person do strange things. Including sabotage you.” #StuffRareSays
Gladly getting that out of the way
Receiving the blessing of a lifetime!!!
I moved forward with that little flicker of fire in my soul
The Next Day:
It was the first day of the workshop. I’d never worked with college students before, but I must admit it was awesome. Despite being unable to participate fully due to a strenuous schedule, I was left wanting to do it again.
Behind the scenes:
During down time, I stood outside in the crisp chill air. The birds chirping in the trees above and my right leg perched on a flagstone step. With my coffee in hand, I took a sip and slowly soaked in the fall sun in awe.
Life as I knew it was beginning to change.
I cringed as I laid my eyes on the van.
With a shrug of my shoulders, and sheer utter disappointment washing over me, I stood in defeat…..
The front door closed and Ryno walked out, carrying his cup in tow as well.
“I enjoy my encounters with Ryno. I like to call our conversations leadership chats.”
“I remember when I wrecked my car.” He said as he took notice of the van.
I looked over at him with some relief.
“Accidents are inevitable. We are all bound to have them.”
In a moment of despair, I mentioned the strain this newfound damage was going to bring to me.
“Don’t” He said with distinction.
In surprise, I looked at him, as he continued to say, “After everything you’ve gotten through, and everything you do, don’t start letting yourself be defeated now. That’s not you. You’re a conqueror.
You always rise to challenges”
With that first workshop under my belt, Things began to dial down for a while. Mid-term elections were coming to an end, the holiday season was beginning to set in, and I was off to a positively steady pace with …. An old friend.
