I totally stepped out of my comfort zone today,
and had a coffee with someone who has been
on my short list of people I don't want to spend time with.
I feel like a better person.
For a couple of years I have co-existed with this person
in my neighborhood and at my children's school.
I have made a commitment to Connor and to myself
to be more involved with his school and his class.
Because of this, I will be within close proximity to this person
quite often for the next 8 months.
So in order to calm the fury that boils within me
every time I am in such a situation,
I chose to be the bigger person and try to
feel less uncomfortable,
put hurt feelings aside,
and take the first step.
All the while, just keeping it on a very real level.
Whatever that may be right now.
Hopefully a good start to a great week!
