Have you ever been in a crowd and all of a sudden you notice someone who you think looks familiar? In fact you believe it is someone you were once fairly close to. You start to question yourself.
“Is that really them?”
“Yes, I think so.”
“Well, it can’t be.”
You quickly get to the point where saying hello is pointless because you are convinced that your mind is playing tricks on you. You continue on with your day and as it passes they enter your mind once again. Somehow you now feel that it was indeed them and you wonder why you walked by instead of saying hello for a minute.
It is amazing how a quick few moments like the above can quickly become something that overcomes you for a bit. For me it is a reminder that there are so many people and surroundings that have made me what I am today. Because every situation and person that has been a part of my life has provided me with something. Whether that something was a positive or negative; it shaped me. I think of the ways that I have shaped others. There are moments I can be proud of and others I’d change if I could. But then if those moments didn’t happen the way they did; today wouldn’t be the today that it is. For either party. Something to think about, isn’t it?
I was looking through some quotes and ran across the one below and felt it was perfect for what I started to write here. It is so true. Just perfect.
No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever. ~Francois Muriac
To everyone who has left a mark on my forever, thank you.
