A friend and I had not been talking for quite some time, and their birthday came up. Instead of continuing on as we had been, I decided to reach out and say “Happy Bornday!”. My reaching out spawned into a conversation about why we hadn’t talked in so long. My stance throughout the entire experience was, “We have differing perceptions of what existed before this moment, so rehashing those details does not move us forward. All that truly matters is whether or not we choose this friendship….and if so, decide how we will cultivate it from this moment going forward.” After a lengthy conversation, we have rekindled our friendship and are back on track to deepen our connection.
I have mentioned cultivating connections many times in these affirmations. What I believe to be irrevocably true is that we are all connected, because we all come from the same source- God. What this means is that we cannot change the fact that we are connected; however, we can control our choice to cultivate a particular connection or not. To cultivate a connection is to be purposeful and intentional in deepening the connection through consistent, effective and honest communication as well as time in each other’s presence while choosing to be our true/genuine Self. Anything less than this could very well be counterproductive to cultivating any connection. So if we choose to be close and/or closer to someone, let’s let them know it by our words as well as our actions, and try to minimize negative energy. If we let love lead, this process will be very easy. And so it is…
