This morning I have been thinking about an incident that happened a few weeks ago, and I am wondering if I maybe over reacted. You see, Roger and I were going to a benefit for a friend that lost his daughter to heart disease, and another couple was supposed to meet us there. We hadn’t seen this couple in a long time, so we were all looking forward to getting together to catch up and support a great cause, or so I thought.
This couple didn’t show up. It wouldn’t have been a big deal but this wasn’t the first time this has happened, heck it wasn’t even the second or third time this has happened. There have been several times we have made plans to get together, only to be left standing without even so much as a message as to why. I have been friends with this girl since high school but unfortunately this really hurt my feelings.
I suppose I was feeling a little disregarded. I felt as though we didn’t even matter enough to warrant a Facebook message. Did I over react? Or could it be that this friendship just didn’t matter as much to them as it did to us? Anyway, this has been weighing heavily on my mind lately. I am not one to hold a grudge.
I am very forgiving and I want to be in this case as well, however I can be forgiving without setting myself up for further hurt. I don’t want to set myself up again or invest in a relationship that is only one-sided. It is not as though I have been carrying around hostility towards them or anything. It is what it is, I suppose. I still haven’t heard from them, so I guess there is nothing left for me to do anyway, except to move forward.
Oh well, this is why I love my blog, it is a perfect place to get these things off my mind.
On a lighter note, this mornings meditation was called Finding Power and the centering thought is “My power and strength are within”. As usual it was a powerful twenty minutes. I intend on considering the centering thought throughout the day. I am going to breathe consciously and allow my presence to keep me grounded. I am going to relax and enjoy each and every minute of the day.
With much love
