There are these moments that you keep close to the chest that you’ll never forget for as long as you live.

Moments that changed you in some way. So much so that you could never go back to who you were before them.

For me, those moments have always brought warmth. Even though situations and people change as time goes on, those moments stand still in time.

Working through resentment is a tricky thing. There’s the part of you that wants to be right about it all and prove a point. It only breeds more anger and bitterness.

And then there’s that ancient part of you – I guess you would call that the soul – that understands that you can honor both: that things have changed and the moment you still treasure.

When that happens…all the resentment and negativity just flows away.

All your left with is love for someone, even though things couldn’t be more different now.

Maybe that’s what opens doors are…

Opportunities for people to walk through – as different human beings – but ones that have impacted you in some important way.

It’s okay for things to change.

They are going to change despite your best efforts.

You can only go with how things are and ride that current.

But I hope you leave doors open along the way. Even if things didn’t end well. Because people are capable of extraordinary things.

And maybe, just maybe, they will walk through that door again.

Wouldn’t that be something.
