Reconnecting with the Past

I don't believe in burning bridges and hold no one responsible for me not enjoying my youth other than myself. I understand that we each were doing the best we could with what we had at the time.

At a time when I'm trying to put the past behind me and move forward in my life, I find it funny that lately there has been a flood of people from my childhood looking to reconnect with me.

I believe that there is a force in the universe that guides us to a certain extent. So I'm thinking there is probably a reason for all of these connections. I've yet to figure out what those reasons might be. But I'm willing to venture down that road so long as it doesn't lead me back to that dark place from where I came.

When I visited Arkansas a year and a half ago, it was so I might pay my respects to my past and put it behind me. I've done a good job of that. Now I've filed the good memories from my youth and taken a giant step forward in moving into the future.

So for all of you from my past, welcome. I know that we have all grown in different ways. And know that our separation over the years was nothing personal. I accept each of you for who you have become and hope that you can do the same with me. If not, it's been great reconnecting with you and I wish you nothing but Love in your future. Feel free to stalk my blog and see what I've been up.

If you are a loyal blog follower and you are patiently waiting for my return, I can tell you that I am healing well and working toward returning very soon. Thank you for your patience.

Good to see you. I agree that Fate (or whatever anyone chooses to call it) puts us in the right place at the right time every now and again. I hope your Memory Lane experience is a positive one.

Good to see you Stew. Yes, that ole 'memory lane' situation that pops up in our heads. You are doing the right thing I think by extending your hand in friendship and leaving it to them if they wish to more forward with you.
Take care and just think.....spring is very near and you'll be in the garden soon getting your hands dirty!! The best therapy, I say!!
