You may remember how I wrote about letting go of relationships that just weren’t working. You know, the kind where things just aren’t gelling between the two of you—or worse, you feel like you’re giving more than receiving.
I was in this situation with someone who had been one of my best friends a year and some back. I decided to let go. So did she. We went our separate ways.
A few days ago, I received a call from a number I didn’t recognize and let it go to voicemail since I had just gotten home. When I listened to it, boy was I surprised to hear the voice of my friend. Her message was filled with love and kindness and a desire for a reconnection.
In my heart, I knew we were receiving a blessing—a second chance—and called her back. Whatever hadn’t gelled between us before was gone. As I told her, we aren’t the same people we were then. We talked for almost an hour, catching up on each other’s lives.
Happiness is reconnecting with old friends.
It struck me how this lovely surprise was part of an ongoing theme recently. When I have let go of something, I am receiving it often in a version that is a thousand times better.
And the key? I have to let go.
That was always hard for the old me, but the new me sees the blessing in it. I appreciate the freedom it gives me. And since I trust it to Spirit, the Universe, whatever you call it, I know it’s in good hands.
I always say people can surprise me. I especially love when I surprise myself. People can change, and so can we.
We can reconnect with people we thought gone from our material lives.
How cool is that?
So if you need to let go of someone right now, take heart. You may be reconnecting with them in the future in a more wonderful way than you could ever have imagined.
