Feel Like Reminiscing

So yesterday I had the chance to reminisce twice on my past.

The first was when I was able to contact someone from High School about something that didn't happen on graduation night. For years I had wanted to let this person know that I had gone to the party that she asked me to go to. I stayed for a while but she didn't show up and I've felt for years that I left too soon and somehow left her disappointed. Well yesterday I was able to voice this to her. It didn't matter to me whether or not she remembered what happened. I had to let her know that I was there and that we just didn't get together. It was a good conversation and I hope we can continue to stay in touch.

The other incident I found on my fridge. It was a birthday card from a friend that was made my first year in college. I can still remember the day clearly and how it helped me feel like I had made some good friends. During that point in my life I was sometimes keeping a journal and the day is marked by an entry and the homemade card is inserted there as well.

It has been good to reminisce about the past. It was also good to talk about things that I haven't been able to resolve. There are still more things that I need to resolve (mainly because my brain works weird and bugs me about them) but it will happen.

It is nice to be able to visit chapters in our lives and complete them and then close them. Clearly this is something you needed to do, and I am glad that you were able to accomplish that after all this time. Well done.

It's nice to be able to get closure, especially about little things that might seem insignificant but mean so much too you. I'm glad you were able to reconnect with your friend!
