The dust is flying now!
Anyone who knows me knows I hate confrontation. I would rather have someone else do my talking or even write a letter! lol No, I don't write letters any longer. My friends, know that writing someone a letter is not the same as talking face to face. An email isn't sharing your emotion and heart. If anything I have learned writing letters only makes the situation worse. It creates this illusion. You think you have opened up, shared your heart honestly and the one reading? Well, they open that letter up and they don't know your heart and cannot hear your soft words and see the pain in your eyes. They see words in front of them and more than likely they gather more anger and again, a mess is stirred. Just simply go to that person. Let them see your heart through your eyes. Let them hear your words through your own expression of love.
So much in life comes and we try to ignore it. I know about trying to ignore pain. It builds and creates something smelly in our hearts. Just as if we entered into our son's room after he has left a bite of food on a plate and slid it under the bed. You simply can't ignore that any longer. It hits you in the face hard and knocks you over. Why wait until then? Why wait until the problem is ready to explode?
Today, maybe you are facing a difficult situation you are dreading. Maybe you are trying to ignore a problem that is only eating your lunch. Make today the day you step forward and say, "Can we please talk?" Make today that day peace can come into your heart again. Today you can let go of the stress you have bottled up for days, months and even years. It is time to let go and bring light to a situation that has been keeping you in the dark. Forgiveness can begin in your heart today and reach others just by taking that first step and reaching out. Pick up that rug, take it out and shake it good!!
