SO LAST MONTH WAS MY SISTER'S BIRTHDAY!

Wohooo, yup my big sis. OK well maybe I won't get in to detail as to how much older she is since most women absolutely LOVE to speak about their age.

I wanted to share something that's pretty personal to me, which I'll get to in just a moment...

First, I'd like to ask you a question. And I'd like you to really think about it honestly for a few moments.

Do you have a best friend? Have you grown-apart, argued with or possibly lost your best friend for some reason?

Ever since I can remember, my sister and I were inseparable. From playing hide-and-go-seek, all the way to learning and growing together now.

My immediate family and I got together and made her a celebration dinner! (Yes, ever since I can remember I love to cook – my mama taught me well!).

Anyhow, the point of this quick post is to ask you...

If there is someone that you were great friends with, and perhaps you had a disagreement, then I'll ask you to set those things aside and forgive that person. Forgive yourself.

If possible I suggest that you reach out to that person by way of phone call (you know, that thing we used to use before internet technology came around).

Make your peace with that person, and don't expect anything in return.

Keep the call quick and to the point. Respect their time. Be completely honest with yourself and with them – without an ounce of judgement. Instead allow the conversation to flow and come from a place of Love.

You can say something like "Hi _______, I was just thinking about you and the reason I'm calling is because I've had some insight in these last few ______ (amount of time), and I just wanted to be completely open with you about things. I completely welcome a friendship between us again. (If this can be done, or is what you want).

Finally, let them speak. And listen.

Give this a shot. Get outside of your comfort zone a bit. Especially if the relationship that you once had ended off on odd or unfinished terms. Perhaps even get some closure. You have nothing to lose when you keep things diplomatic!

Have a wonderful week,
Jonathan
