Seems like we’ve been out of touch for a while. I miss you. I thought I’d write.
I’ve been remembering those wonderful days when it seemed like you were around all the time.
It was such fun. You opened doors to many wonderful activities and opportunities. You gave me many more choices as I lived my life – helped me to experience so much more and help others who were struggling too.
I was connected to many people who appreciated what I could do for them and you seemed to enjoy that environment.
WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
It’s clear now that things cooled and I realise that I started to take you for granted. Maybe I took those people for granted too. Maybe it was a failure of communication with all parties.
I’ve previously thought of you as rather unpredictable – but I’ve finally realised that’s it’s not been you; it’s been ME!
Duh. Forgive me. I didn’t value you as I should have. I let things slip and took my eye off what was important. People will always be more important to me than you are – I won’t apologise for that – only I now see that I’d neglected to acknowledge what is important to you.
I got so used to you being here that I must have assumed you could look after yourself – I think I sometimes forgot to feed you. No wonder you didn’t stay around after that!
THE CHANGING SCENE
Sure, circumstances changed but I should have taken responsibility to create a new, nurturing environment for you. A place you would feel welcome and supported.
Sometimes, it’s true, we need to seek out a new field – to climb higher up the mountain or move to a more fertile valley.
Others want you – that’s very clear. Others want me to let go of you and try to persuade me to hand you over for good. Going forward, I’ll review each exchange for its long-term value, rather than its immediate benefits. I’ll carefully select the right seed for the right soil and climate. I’ll give the process due time and consideration.
A NEW LEAF
So, as we face a New Year, I’m committing again to doing ten specific things I believe are necessary to attract you back into my life and keep you close by. This is my new way of doing things:
I hope all this will encourage you to return in abundance and stay with me for the long haul.
