I didn’t always believe in second chances. I’d rather work on something new than go back and fix, what to me, was broken.
Three recent instances have taught me otherwise. Needless to say, I’ve been reluctant in all.
The only thing that has made me reconsider my point of view was – Sincerity.
The other parties’ sincerity opened up my mind into taking another look at how things have played out which has led to my decision to end things. It enabled me to think what’s possible if things were different, if we were different, or if we choose to try again.
I said yes to these second chances with open eyes and a more open heart – fully understanding what’s at stake and what could go wrong – again. It feels like walking on eggshells on some days and free-diving on others; it’s both limiting and liberating.
I deem these three things worthy of second chances, despite the effort I have to put into them and the leaps in consciousness I have to take, because in the undercurrent I sense a tenderness – life’s way of offering me the chance to forgive and trust again on a whole new level.
