I wonder if you could ever tell when something was about to end.
What I mean by that is have you ever felt like you could tell that a relationship / friendship was about to change or end?
Have you ever foreseen the future of your job whether it was you quitting or you being fired?
Have you ever known that because someone else has made a change that it was ultimately going to change you in some way?
I have always been a really observant person. I often people watch. It gets me in trouble sometimes with my friends because they know what I am doing when they catch me gazing at someone from a far. I was really shy growing up. Watching people and learning things about them and before they even say a word became the norm for me. I could read people. I still read people. I catch things that other people don't see purely by observing a person's mannerisms or behavior.
I get in trouble with Coleen sometimes because I am pessimistic and I know how something is going to play out. She is such an optimistic person, it is one of the qualities I love most about her. I often tell her what is going to happen and she doesn't want to believe me because it is normally a negative thing. Unfortunately I am right most of the time. I don't like it but it happened very recently and although it is hard to believe it is exactly what I said would happen.
Don't get me wrong, sometimes I am right and it's a great thing but most of the time it is the opposite way around. There are a few things that are on my radar. Changes that seem like they are going to happen. A couple of them I really get but one or two of them I am not sure why they are going to happen. I'll let you know if they pan out.
I believe that God has a plan and there is a reason that people are put in our lives or in our way. Sometimes they just seem to pass through but other times they stay and leave footprints on our heart. It is easy to let go of someone that is just passing through but it is much harder when they stay and leave footprints on our hearts.
I am not sure really why I wrote this post, it was just something on my mind and on my heart. I appreciate you reading and I hope that you hold on tight to those that make footprints on your heart and never let them go!
